More and more homeowners are requesting battery backup solutions as part of their solar power installations. With increased adoption of solar power, concerns about fire hazards are likely to grow. Are these concerns justified?
Renewable energy is rapidly emerging as an attractive choice for businesses and households alike. Any installation project poses potential safety risks. The goal is to minimize them to keep employees well-protected.
This challenge can be addressed effectively by means of an application-specific fire protection concept for stationary lithium-ion battery energy storage systems, such as the one developed by Siemens through extensive testing.
Energy's deathprint is the number of people killed by one kind of energy or another per kWhr produced. Coal is the worst. According to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Academy of Science.
Faulty connections during installation can lead to hot spots, and eventually to fires, faulty equipment either due to defects during the manufacturing process or due to damage or lack of maintenance, general degradation.
IMO Precision Controls will be exhibiting at Intersolar Europe booth B3.149. We will be exhibiting our two core solar safety products - the FireRaptor Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown solution, and the SI/SIM ranges of TRUE DC solar isolators.
They have been changing the game for 10 years with their original Top Mount line for Asphalt Shingle roofs, and by now supplying one of the widest ranges of solar mounts in North America. From their patented products, to the custom production services they offer, QuickBOLT has been working with solar installers for nearly a decade to make solar installations easier than ever before.
