I'm wondering if there are any safety concerns to consider with solar - are there electrical issues that come up? Are photovoltaics actually safe?

Think of them like jellyfish. You can touch the tops, but if you touch the bottoms where the wires are, you'll probably be in for a world of hurt. The electricity is created on the bottom of the panel, where the negative and positive charges come from two separate cords. (Leland)
