Solar PV Precautions to keep you Safe!

When making any change to your home it is always important to ensure that you and your property are fully protected, when you install solar PV this is no different. Eco2Solar would like to take this opportunity to remind you of two important steps which you should undertake to make sure that you are protected.

1. Please remember to contact your insurance provider, following your installation, to add the system onto your current policy. This will cover you in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the system.

2. Please remember to inform your local fire department that your building has been fitted with solar modules. Often, fire fighters only learn that the building is equipped with a solar system when they arrive on the scene, which will make safely distinguishing the fire more complicated. In the event of a fire occurring in a solar powered home, information can lessen the risk to fire fighters and allow them to do their job without being impeded.

Thank you for reading this important piece of information, we hope that if you have a solar PV system you have already taken these necessary steps to protect yourself and your property. If you have any queries, or require assistance with these steps, please do not hesitate to contact the Eco2Solar office on 01562 977 977 or
