I recently went to the electronics store and got a 40w solar panel, charge controller and 12v battery. I was able to easily set this up myself and the system is completely disconnected from mains electricity.
I plan on expanding this setup to add about 4 more 120w 12v panels while still keeping it disconnected from the mains electricity. I plan on using it to power a small media server and charge batteries.
However someone informed me that by setting this up myself I would have troubles with insurance if I ever have a fire not related to the panels.
Are there any laws related to DIY solar setups in Australia and could this cause issues with insurance?
