Solar Safety Leave a comment

Solar Safety as with safety around any and all electrical systems is very important. For the average solar system owner solar safety is probably one of the last things on your mind and if your system was installed properly and labeled well you will probably never need to think about it however if something should happen do you know how to shut your solar power system down safely and completely? This is where Proper labeling of your solar power system is essential and should be very easy to read and follow the labels, diagrams or other instructions as a system owner you should be familiar with how to shut your system down. You should go and look at your system and meter main electrical  panel just to make sure you understand how to do it and if you cant figure it out call the people that installed it for you and get it explained to you or labeled so anyone can quickly shut the solar system down. This type of labeling is required by the national electrical code and should have been clearly labeled at time of installation. If your labels are faded or missing entirely we can help you get what you need to fix it.
