With a solar powered house that's not possible and I believe that a standard practice is emerging where the house on fire will be left to burn and efforts will be focused on neighbouring properties.
This is a standard practice where, in Chile, US, worldwide?
What are you basing this policy on, you know, do you have articles that point to this, have you seen it happening, something a fireman told you etc....I am a bit skeptical about this policy.
Although it is an interesting point to consider, I agree with that.
I would assume a good solar system would have an easy way to disconnect, although probably from inside the house, or on its exterior, which might be less helpful in a fire, especially to a fireman.
