Advocacy update - DC isolators in solar installations

NECA WA continues to be in discussions with Building and Energy regarding the use of DC isolators in solar installations. 

Some members may have seen a recent segment of the 7.30 Report in which both the Clean Energy Council and the Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Brigade expressed concerns about DC Isolators contributing towards fires in solar installations. 

NECA WA shares these concerns and will continue to advocate for the prohibition of their use in solar installations.

If you have any suggestions or comments regarding NECA’s advocacy efforts, please contact Aidan O’Grady, General Manager Member Services and Operations, at or phone (08) 6241 6100.
