Lack of solar maintenance can cause fires
Fires can (and do) result from faults in the solar PV system. The possible reasons for fires are due to:
- Fauty solar DC isolator
- Deterioration to the cable insulation
- Defective components
- Damage from heavy storms and bushfires
- Poor installation
DC Isolator Fires
The solar DC isolator/s fitted to the rooftop or external walls can be exposed to ongoing harsh weather which can lead to deterioration posing a severe fire risk.
Isolator fires are very dangerous as dry leaves and garden debris (which can collect under or around the solar panels and components) can catch causing the fire to quickly spread. According to Fire and Rescue NSW, solar panel fires have increased 500% in the past 3 years, however, the rate of solar safety inspections have decreased.
The Clean Energy Council has improved the safety of rooftop DC isolator switches by introducing additional installation requirements in the last 6 years. CEC also recommends annual solar inspections and homeowners and businesses need to ensure their system is safe and well-maintained. The best way to prevent isolator fires is by carrying out an annual solar inspection. Regular checks will ensure the issues are dealt with efficiently, preventing future breakdowns and reducing the incidence of fire.
Burnt out DC isolators are more common than you can imagine. Our solar technicians have found many burnt isolators in during solar inspections and servicing. That's why we urge you to book a solar inspection today and avoid preventable fire damage.

- expose faulty or incorrect solar installation practices.
- identify problems which could be reducing the power generation of your solar system.
