Lightning Protection: Alberta
Lightning is very common in Alberta. For instance, in 2019, Alberta recorded an average of 400,000 lightning strikes. That’s about 1.94 strikes per square mile! Many areas in Alberta saw over 5,000 cloud to ground lightning strikes in 2019 as well. Alberta sees many thunderstorms in the summer and some of them are classified as severe.
Lightning Protection Systems are a rather inexpensive way to protect your property from the damaging effects of lightning. A typical system consists of lightning rods, lightning protection conductor, ground rods and bonding metallic bodies.

Lightning doesn’t need rain. Though we usually associate lightning with rainy storms, the phenomenon does not actually need rain to occur. Dry lightning is something that happens in western states and can be a major cause of wildfires and other hazards.
