Solar Updates in the 2017 National Electrical Code
Recorded On: 05/15/2017
There are more than 1.3 million photovoltaic (PV) systems installed nationwide, with more installed every day. PV system safety and reliability is increasingly guided by robust codes and standards, including solar provisions in the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) National Electrical Code (NEC). Although solar is by no means new to the NEC, the 2017 version has updates and additions to support the growing solar economy. In this webinar, national expert Jim Rogers discussed new articles in the NEC, such as Large Scale Photovoltaic Electric Supply Stations and Energy Storage Systems, as well as updates to existing provisions like rapid shutdown, and grounding of PV systems. The FREE webinar was supported with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot program.
