If for any reason you need to switch your system off, you’ll find ‘Shutdown Procedure’ instructions at the inverter location. If this becomes separated from its location at any point in the future, the steps are straightforward:
- Turn off the ‘SOLAR SUPPLY MAIN SWITCH’ located in the switchboard.
- Turn off the ‘DC PV ARRAY ISOLATOR’ located at or as part of the inverter.
- Restarting the system is just the reverse of steps 1 & 2.
Easy right? The great news is that you should rarely ever need to shut down your solar energy system. It’s important though that I inform you ‘how to’ on the off chance that you may need to change the systems operational state manually.
You’ll also see that the tech team has installed some big bright stickers in and around your switchboard. These are just notifications for related service personnel which may work on your property in the future.
