PV Systems and the NEC
The 7-8 hour, one-day session will cover the 2011, 2014, and 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements for designing and installing PV systems. A basic knowledge of the NEC is required since Code basics will not be addressed. Conductor selection, ampacity calculations and overcurrent devices and disconnects will be covered. How to do it correctly and what not to do are items on the agenda. The focus will be on utility-interactive systems. 2014 NEC requirements in major areas related to PV systems will be addressed. Electricians, electrical inspectors and PV installers should attend. PV installers will receive 6 hours off NAPCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) continuing education credits for the course.
