Solar Photovoltaic Audits

It is important to recognise that in South Australia most electrical equipment can only be installed by trained persons who hold an electrical license authorised by the Consumer and Business Services (CBS).

The Installation of Solar Panel Systems is classified as electrical installation work and therefore can only be installed by a licensed electrician.

Please note: The person signing the Electrical Certificate of Compliance, as the person doing the work and testing, is therefore responsible for the entire solar installation.

In a recent audit of some solar installations in South Australia, the Office of the Technical Regulator (OTR) found that one of the most significant issues identified was the incorrect wiring of the DC isolation switch.
