Maybe the insurance companys have calculated that less panels are damaged near the coast compared to inland.

Been Running BP 175 Watt panel and Outback MPPT for about 5 years on-board now. Neither of them has missed a beat or produced a failure in all that time! They have been absolutely amazing! Just steady, fairly consistent, pain free power.

Don't know if Morningstar has a charge controller that might suit your application, but I love their string calculator for evaluating combos of solar panels and their controllers:
