This is very common in Hawaii and 30 years is a good life for one in Hawaii.
Down in Kapoho I saw some that failed after 10 years.

Last years eruption did a lot of damage to electrical equipment that will be showing up in the next few years, if it it hasn't already.

aluminum conductors, or wires need to have the dialectic grease applied

Antioxidant grease on all connections -- even copper/copper -- not just in the breaker panel, but also wire nuts and fixture terminals, because keeping out air/moisture just avoids all kinds of problems later. Especially with low-voltage DC.

Thanks Kalakoa! I only know it by a trade name of NaaLox in the electrical department of your favorite supply house (well, maybe not favorite, but all ya got)!
