Electrical shorts happen with solar panels. If a solar panels wire gets cut or chewed it can energize the metal frame. This could become a hazard if you touch it. To protect myself and family I’m grounding the frame to the ground.
I’m using an old grounding kit with rods in the ground. The frames are then connected to the rods with 6 gauge copper wire.
This frame is part of my off-grid solar system. Check out some of my other videos to see my DIY powerwall.
