Recently up in northern Az., there was quite an anomaly, and I'd like some information as no one seems to be able to even guess what's happened. 1) a set of 5 of those el-cheapo amorphous panels, Harbor Freight types, (15 all total) were wired to a single lead in wire....A couple weeks back the lead in wire suddenly vaporized and melted all over the roof of one person's house. They had been in place for some 3 years and suddenly the wire melts? 2) A set of 10 year old blue silicon panels that had been functioning perfectly ( warranty is good for 20 years) 2 on one building, 2 on another....1 panel of each set suddenly went beserk...by that I mean they started to exceed their rated wattage and amperage outputs. Some tell me they have a diode which can go bad and cause the panels to do strange things, worse case scenario: fry your batteries! They almost did that! Evidently these diodes are to prevent reversing current flow when the sun goes down, but isn't that the job of the charge controller? And why would the panels be able to suddenly exceed their ratings and the new digital charge controller saw this and yet did nothing? 3) A brand new set of 2 Kyocera panels, ( less than 1 month in service)suddenly went from their normal wattage and amperage, to near their output limts (according to mfg.) The dealer in Flagstaff, Az., cannot explain it, and Kyocera has yet to return the emails or calls.... Now all of this happened in a 2 day time period and "supposedly" there was a solar flare in that time frame.....? Is that even a possibilty to have such an event or should I say a number of very starnge coincidences all happen in such a short time frame and all in locations within a mile of each other? Anyone? I got nuthin'!
