Copper theft is one of the most serious incidents that can affect solar installations. In this sense, measures are being taken to avoid temptation and to make it more difficult for thieves. In most cases, copper is replaced by aluminum and the wiring is directly buried to make its extraction more difficult (provided that the insurer authorizes it). It is important to have a good insurance that responds to these incidents in order to minimize damages to the owners of the installations.
