Is a solar battery safe?

If you’re thinking about whether a solar battery might be right for your home, you might be wondering about safety. Like any household device, it’s a vital consideration.

The good news is, solar batteries are considered very safe. Most use lithium-ion technology which means the risk of putting a solar battery on the side of your house is similar to having mobile phones or laptops in your home – it’s essentially the same technology. 

Like solar panels, you should hire a Clean Energy Council accredited installer to install your battery system. An accredited installer should make sure the battery is installed safely and in accordance with strict Australian standards, and that all cables will be installed out of reach.


Safety and security that won’t break the bank
