New household solar and need to do ac work

Hi all, we have recently had tesla add a whole home solar system. Now i have a gfci outlet that has gone bad and needs replacing. I am totally comfortable replacing the receptacle but my main breaker panel is now plastered with warning stickers that off may not be off and caution and what not.

Here is my question, given that we now have a grid tied solar system, do i need to do anything other than flip the breaker for the circuit i want to work on? If i want to add to another circuit (add a light to an existing circuit that has capacity) do i need to do anything special before i begin that work?

Thanks for any advice.

No..... just turn the breaker off for that circuit.

If you are installing new breakers then you may be more comfortable turning off the panel main and the breaker that connects the solar to that panel.
