Energy Prices

On the box today. National Audit Office says energy prices are to rise for next seventeen years. I wonder where they get the seventeen years from? Why not eigthteen?
Better buy more celotex and LED light bulbs.

You can congratulate yourself on being one of the people making this price rise inevitable.

Actually I think I'll buy a shotgun.
Plenty of solar panels to use as targets.

Unfortunately that would just put buildings insurance costs up.

Ah but consider. If the cost of insuring solar panels exceeds the FIT payments, the job is done.

No. Have you missed the point?
the owner of the panels pays the insurance premium, not the naughty boy with a shotgun.

Only if the panels are treated as a seperate risk, either as an itemised risk in a general buildings insurance policy or as a seperate policy for the panels. Otherwise the increased costs just get rolled up into everyones premiums.

Who cares? It would make an excellent reason for insurers to refuse to pay out on claims for houses fitted with solar PV panels. Perhaps somebody should suggest it to them.

ISTR a suggestion that fire brigades may treat houses with PV arrays with more caution than normal which might affect the insurance rating.

It's just electricity. Most houses already have it.

Cut the cable, turn the mains off and the inverter stops, there should be an isolator near the meter and inverter.
The DC is waterproof, as are the panels so water isn't a problem.

Its a bit late worrying about it if the roof has gone.
Has the main switch in the fuse box worked after the flames have got to it? Are the fire brigade going to dig up (or rather wait two hours for someone else) the incomer and cut it before they tackle a fire in case it hasn't? Do they even know where your main switch is?
You really should think about the conductivity of water and the actual chances of getting a decent shock, its not very high. It requires a fault, close proximity of the operator to the fault (a few inches) and for their protective clothing to not work at two points before you will get a current through them.
