Frequently Asked Questions


Q. How often should my panels be checked?

A. The Australian Government recommends having your solar system checked at least every 5 years.

“ref. Solar Victoria's website”


Q. Why should i consider this?

A. SolarQuotes states “Rooftop solar is not perfectly safe” Anything with live current running through it can be dangerous if damaged or defective and solar systems are no exception. Fires have resulted from faults and, while most have been small, some have resulted in whole buildings being destroyed.

While solar systems have no moving parts to wear out, problems that can potentially occur include:

  • Deterioration of cable insulation over time.

  • Failure of defective components.

  • Components filling with water.

  • Corrosion.

  • Animals chewing on cables.

  • Damage from natural disasters such as earthquakes, bush fires, and storms.

  • Damage from home renovations.

  • Incompetent installation.

  • DC isolator fires.

Having a professional inspect a system can result in problems being identified and rectified before they become a danger.
