I love the idea of renewable energy and its positive impact to the environment. Yet, using metal to produce energy by the means of solar panels and wind turbines put’s you at a risk. What risk? Metal Thieves.
Metal theft is now the fastest growing crime in the UK. In 2008, it was reported that metal theft cost the industry some £360,000,000 annually! Why is it so valuable? The cost of metal is rising. If thieves are looking to steal metal, where better to start than targeting Wind and Solar farms? Wind and Solar farms become vulnerable to these attacks as:
Wind Turbines and Solar Panels are placed outside making them easy to retrieve.
The quality of the metal is much higher than that on roofs and other exteriors.
Wind Turbines have copper wires in them. Thieves have been known to break into wind turbines and take 1 tonne of copper just from one wind turbine!
Solar Panels also have copper wires in them. Damage can then be caused to Solar Panels when thieves want to access the copper wires inside.
