NT WorkSafe Workers to Ensure Safe Quality Rooftop Solar Installations

A new NT WorkSafe Program is aimed at ensuring rooftop solar installations in The Northern Territory are safe and properly done.

Given the 248 per cent increase in the number of Solar PV systems in the Northern Territory in the past 5 years, attention to solar rooftop installations safety is crucial.

In fact the NT is the only jurisdiction where solar PV installations continue to increase each year, and since the Top End is in a cyclone region, the NT has specific requirements for Solar PV installations to ensure safety during a cyclone.

As WorkSafe points out, the NT’s extreme climate means installation work and practices which are suitable in the southern states can cause issues in the NT.

Components can deteriorate faster in the NT and cause an electrical or fire risk, which is why installation must be done to meet conditions in the Territory.
