PV Systems & the NEC

THIS CLASS HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED.
PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.

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 of NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) continuing education credits for the course.   

Instructor:

John Wiles retired in April 2013 as a Senior Research Engineer at the Southwest Technology Development Institute at New Mexico State University.  However, he works part time as 25% employee and continues to assist the PV industry, electrical contractors, electrical inspectors, and purchasing agencies in understanding the PV requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC).  He is an active member on six UL Standards Technical Panels.  John served as Secretary for the PV Industry Forum involved with Article 690 of the NEC.  Over 30 submissions were accepted for the 2011 NEC and 55 proposals were submitted for the 2014 Code.  He drafted the text for Article 690 in the 2005 NEC Handbook and 2008 NEC Handbook.  Fieldwork involves balance of systems design for PV systems, inspections and acceptance testing of PV systems, test and evaluation of PV components, and the design and installation of data acquisition systems.  He bought his first codebook in 1960 and installed his first PV system in 1984. He lived in an off-grid, PV/wind-powered home (permitted and inspected, of course) with his wife Patti, two dogs, and a cat for more than 16 years.  His retirement home currently has a 8.5 kW utility-interactive PV system will full-house battery backup and now has three dogs and two cats.  He writes the “Perspectives on PV” series of articles for the International Association of Electrical Inspectors in their IAEI News magazine and has published an IAEI book on PV and the NEC for inspectors and plan reviewers.  He has a Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering.
