Wind pressure relief solar panel roof system, update1

Ronald
This update shows the panels in the high nortwest wind position..... Background: I have a couple of big maple trees near my house that I really don't want to cut... But I also would like to have 18 solar panels on my roof and since only one roof segment is facing south I'm forced to put some panels where they could be subject to a lot of wind. This system has each panel mounted slightly off center on a pole so that as the wind force increases the panel acts like a weather vane, not a sail, and rotates to reduce the force. Assuming that a high south wind will be rare I put a stop on the bottom of the long side to catch the panel as the wind decreases. In the event of that rare south wind the stop has to give way and I now have to invoke string and a tricky stop resetting mechanism.. more on this later.... #pitched_roof #PV #Solar_Panel #Wind_pressure_relief
