The article deals with aerodynamic study of solar panel assemblies. Experimental measurements were realized in BLWT wind tunnel. The aim of the solution was to determine the maximum pressure and suction wind load on top and bottom surfaces of panels. The resulting net pressure coefficient represents the maximum local pressure in each panel row as maximum values from all wind directions. The experimentally obtained cp,net values were compared with the conservative values in EN 1991-1-4 for open monopitch canopies. A lower wind load in the inner regions of the triangular assemblies should be used in the design of fixing supports.
