It is always exciting to see that new solar technologies are being developed; even if it is not fully ready for prime time. However, some products are marketed with a grain of salt to Australians, because not all products are suitable as recommended by the manufacturer.
The most recent example is the upcoming product, which combines a solar panel, energy storage and inverters. Panels can be added to increase output and capacity. The manufacturer said the owner of the system can plug directly into a house's external power outlet to provide electricity to the home.
This is a great idea in theory, but there is a significant potential problem with this - using such a product in connection to a power grid can be illegal in Australian housing.
A few years ago, another "plug and play" product produced some excitement - plug-and-play grid-connected PV inverters. Its use is also illegal in Australia.
Such gadgets must comply with other regulations, one of the Australian standards. AS 4777.1 states: "The inverter shall be connected to a switch-specific circuit via fixed wiring". When plugged into a power point, such a product will defy this standard.
These rules do not prevent access to technology because of it. There is a problem relating to the safety of a person who goes beyond the use of the apparatus.
For example, it is unclear whether these products have enough anti-island protection - they can cut out fast enough? Such protection can prevent such regimes from resuming activities in the event of power outages, exporting power to the electricity grid, and potentially endangering workers' lives.
Another real danger is the use of a so-called "suicide plug" to connect to a home's external power outlet. When one end is inserted into the panel, the other end has male male contacts on the exposed pins. Touch it, and active can carry the risk of electric shock.
The global online marketplace is increasingly providing the ultimate consumer with a variety of incredible gadgets and gadgets; but Australians need to do any product due diligence before buying. Use does not comply with Australia's safety standards, you can also put your home insurance policy risk electrical products bear in mind.
