2017 NEC Key Changes and Best Practices
This course will review the 2017 National Electrical Code requirements for solar PV system installations. It will provide an introduction of the various system types, basics on system operation, as well as providing visual examples of the various equipment as outlined in Article 690.2. The course will also cover many examples of common code violations observed during the inspections of thousands of PV systems in the Northeast. It will identify the violation, review the code reference, and show examples of code-compliant installations. During the course, there will also be an in-depth analysis of Article 690.47 Grounding Electrode System Requirements, Solar Labeling Requirements, and Article 705.12 Interconnection Requirements. The course will conclude with a review of Chapter 11 of NFPA 1: Fire Code, as it relates to solar PV installations.
