With the enormous uptake of solar power both in Australia and across the world, Solar Developments have become increasingly concerned about solar panel risks and associated solar PV hazards. Until now there has been no effective way of urgently deactivating a solar PV array either remotely, manually or automatically, which is why we have developed PVStop—a spray-on solution to mitigate solar panel risks by reducing DC electrical output to safe levels offering emergency personnel, electrical contractors and home owners peace of mind. With over 1.5 million solar panel installation in Australia and over 1 billion solar panels globally, we have the only solution capable of switching off solar panels quickly, safely and reliably.
