One of the lesser known facts about the alternative energy sector is that there is a tremendous amount of computer-operated aspects of the facilities. Even though the actual harnessing of the fuel source (wind or sun) involves more mechanical elements like wind turbines and solar panels which heat water, the actual running of the facilities and the processing of the energy produced is done largely through the use of computers and data processing equipment. This equipment is at serious risk with regards to power surges, especially those created by lightning strikes.

One of the largest expenditures of money with regards to the creation of alternative energy is the upkeep and replacement or repair of technological equipment that is within the industrial installation. This is due to the loss of that equipment due to failure or the resetting and repair of that equipment through damage.
