With a fall in the number of unsafe systems for rooftop solar as published in the latest report by the Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator, it shows that industry standards have improved, demonstrating increased protection for installers and consumers.
Data in the report shows the proportion of unsafe and potentially unsafe PV systems actually fell from 5.5 per cent for 2014 installations (0.7% unsafe and 4.8% potentially unsafe) down to 1.7 per cent of inspections in 2018 (0.7% unsafe, 1% potentially unsafe) which is s positive step in the right direction.
Kane Thornton, chief of the Clean Energy Council, Australia made a statement yesterday saying that;
“More than one in five Australian households have solar on their roofs, and what this report tells us is that the vast majority of these systems are installed safely and in line with the industry guidelines set out by the Clean Energy Council’s Solar Accreditation program,” he also stated that industry could not become complacent.
