As commercial and utility-scale solar projects become more widespread, fires and failures shouldn’t. Unfortunately, the number of rooftop solar installation fires in the United States each year increased 69 percent between 2016 and 2018, according to U.S. Fire Administration data. Unprotected, improperly connected or incompatible connectors are some of theRead More
