Is there a fire risk with solar panels?

In 2016, Renew, a not for profit organisation, commissioned a report into the fire risk of solar PV systems.
They found that just 1.5% of residential fires in Australia were linked with solar PV systems.
According to the report, the highest known cause of solar-related fires was determined to be an unspecified electrical component of the solar PV system.
As part of the study, a survey of Australian based solar installers was conducted and it was found that over 60% of these installers indicated that rooftop DC isolators were a primary cause of solar related fires in Australia.

Professional install of high quality components is paramount to the safety of a solar PV system.  All of AEF's vetted suppliers are CEC accredited retailers and use high quality, warranted DC isolators and offer a minimum of 5 year workmanship warranty.
