HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 21, 2011 5 Solar panel checks » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Check solar panel installations. NSW Fair Trading started the first of its 500 checks on solar panel installations early this month. Minister Anthony Roberts said inspection areas were Baulkham Hills, Blacktown, Kellyville and surrounds. He said these checks follow those on 55 homes in Port Macquarie in February this year, which revealed alarming defects and breaches of the Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2004 and the Home Building Act 1989. ''Fair Trading received an average 200 calls a day to a dedicated audit hotline and 165 emails so far to a dedicated email address,'' he said. The checks are carried out by Fair Trading inspectors and teams of licensed, qualified electricians provided by the National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA), at no cost to consumers. Mr Roberts said officers inspect for electricity safety including switches, wiring, cables, signage and markings. Officers leave stickers on homes inspected -- white means no issues detected, orange means minor issues detected that pose no immediate safety risk and red sticker means serious defect.
