Can hailstorm damage the pv modules?

Generally, solar modules are protected by hailstorm. The hardened special glass is shelled with ice balls, which have got a diameter of 12, 5 mm to 75 mm. Thereby, the velocity of impact amounts to 140 km/h. These tests are executed according to IEC-Norm.  Therefore, the destruction through hailstorm is small.
