60 Acre Solar Farm Fire Prevents Fire Fighters Access To Flames

On August 27, 2019, there was a fire on a 60 acre solar farm in the city of Pittsburg, California, close to residential and business areas.

During the fire, the firefighter were informed the solar panels were energized and high risk, thus preventing them from getting under the panels.

If “energized” solar panels are so high risk that firefighters are told not to get close to them, it raises the question as to just how safe the homes that are located close to solar farms are?
