Important Fire & Safety Information

Helping Our Community

SolarCraft is honored to have such a great group, that hit the ground running to help our community in need.  We focused all our crew & trucks to aid in emergency efforts for over a week.   We helped relocate people, move materials and resources, assisting in evacuations, shelters, shuttling cargo & relief supplies, etc.

We stand by our friends, family and loyal customers as we work together to rebuild the Sonoma & Napa communities stronger than before!

Important Safety Information for Solar Electric Customers:

If you are concerned with the SolarCraft solar system powering your home or business – please remember that ‘distributed-generation’ (grid-connected) solar systems are connected to the utility grid (except for very rare battery-backup off-grid solar systems).  If the utility grid goes down in your area, your solar system will not continue to power your home or business.

If you have to evacuate your home or business and/or would like to disable your SolarCraft system before leaving – this can be done by either by pulling the ‘Solar Disconnect’ to OFF position or turning the designated ‘Solar Breaker’ to OFF position.  Please consider your own safety and the safety of others first – disconnecting your own solar system is not necessary, but could be seen as an extra precaution or as assisting firefighters that are working hard to save lives and structures.   All solar systems have a visible disconnect labelled as Solar PV Disconnect that allows firefighters to quickly disable solar electric systems if they are concerned that the solar modules are still creating power even when utility power is down.   To prevent this and risk to firefighters, they disconnect the solar systems to stop the flow of solar electricity.

Safety first!  All clients, employees and partners are urged to take every precaution to protect yourself and your family and loved ones.
