Hail test for the weather resistant smartflower solar system.
Some people have asked if the smartflower can withstand harsh weather like hail storms. Well, check out the video below to find out!
In the video, the petals are anchored to a wall. Then hail ice is placed inside a cylinder like gun. The hail ice is shot at a speed of 51 miles per hour at various spots of the petals including the weaker points between the cells. The panel essentially shakes the attack off.
Harsh weather can be endured by the smartflower.
In heavy rain, the smartflower gets cleaned. In heavy winds, the smart flower will close itself. Through heavy hail, the smartflower does not break. Sun feeds the smartflower power. It contains bristles on the edges of its petals to clean itself when it opens and closes. The device contains passive rear-ventilated solar panels which keeps it cooler. During daytime or nighttime, the flower remains very smart. A smart device that can handle all kinds of weather. Some people ask if it can withstand the cold. Fortunately, the device was originally built in Austria which is a pretty cold area. So it is very likely. No one has yet asked if it can withstand lava.
