Do you have to worry about the heat that solar panels generate on your roof?

    One potential hazard of rooftop solar panels is the difficulty it can cause in the unfortunate event of a home fire.  With panels storing so much voltage, it presents dangers to firefighters that are not present in homes without solar panels.


    “For example, you cannot put an ax through them to open up a roof to vent – your putting the ax through 600 volts. If fire is infringing upon solar panels on the roof it will compromise the integrity of the panels. You then have 600 volts of live electrical energy – and what don’t you do when you have live electrical energy – you don’t put water on it.”
