Homeowners and corporations blame Tesla solar systems for rooftop fires. But do they have merit?

Both blame a faulty connector Tesla uses on solar installations as the main cause of the fires


Some homeowners and corporations claim a faulty product used with Tesla solar panel systems causes the panels to spontaneously combust.

These homeowners said they are frustrated as they wait for Tesla to fix damaged panels on their roofs.

On the other hand, Corporations like Walmart, are filing lawsuits against Tesla for rooftop fires they claim are caused by Tesla solar systems. Adding that the issue starts with a product included in the systems installed.

These allegations are very disturbing considering that the Wallingford, Connecticut-based manufacturer of the said product, denies the claims.
