The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Xantrex Technology Inc. - a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, of Livermore, Calif. have announced a voluntary recall of Xantrex Grid Tie Solar Inverters.

This is the solar power box that many of us (that have solar homes) have in our garage.

The hazzard is: A component of the inverter can degrade, causing out gassing within the wiring compartment of the inverter. When arcing occurs, gasses could build and force the compartment cover to be blown off. If the cover is blown off with sufficient force it can injure the user or person, or cause damage to property in close proximity to the inverter.

If you have not received a recall letter then you may want to go to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website to verify that your inverter is or is not on the recall list. Here is a link to this recall:
