Could you please supply me with the number of fires that have been attended relating to solar or photovoltaic panels from 2010 to date.
Since 2012 (only available records), based on a search using the electrical supply as the source of ignition, there has been one incident (a solar vehicle battery charger in 2022). The key words used to search our records were ‘solar’, ‘panel’, ‘photovoltaic’, ‘PV’.
