Fire & Flammability

The Solar America Board for Codes and Standards (Solar ABCs) identified fire and flammability safety areas as current high priority issues facing the photovoltaic (PV) industry and planned programs to respond to these issues. Code officials and the solar industry want to better understand all the elements of fire and flammability safety and quality issues in order to position the PV industry and consumer on a path for high quality and safe PV systems.

As the number of PV systems increases, addressing questions and concerns about fire safety for PV systems have never been more vital. Fire safety and PV involved three separate issues.
