Homeowners need to be reminded to have maintenance checks.
Now Ms Booth is warning others to get older solar systems checked after an electrician confirmed the fire began in faulty DC isolators…
Mr Hristodoulidis said systems should be inspected by an accredited installer “at least” once a year, focusing on the isolators and wiring. “That way they can check the equipment is free from any water ingress, and if there is, action can be taken to avoid any incidents occurring in the future,” he said.
Mr Hristodoulidis said home owners should be particularly vigilant after major weather events.
