Solar power is new to most in the electrical industry and this expanding and exciting industry has created many NEC challenges for the designer, contractor, installer, inspector, and instructor. As the market for Solar Photovoltaic systems continues to grow, the rules governing their installations continue to evolve, but don’t be intimidated; Mike’s textbook will give you an edge, because of the extra effort put forth to organize these in an easy-to-follow manner.
Mike addresses possible conflicts or confusing NEC requirements, tips on proper electrical installations, and warnings of dangers related to improper electrical installations. He can’t eliminate confusing, conflicting, or controversial Code requirements, but he puts them into sharper focus to help you understand their intended purpose. In addition to covering Article 690 of the 2011 NEC, Mike covers other related NEC Articles, including Article 705 which covers the installation of electric power production sources operating in parallel with a primary source(s) of electricity. You’ll also learn how to cross reference the code requirements to understand how they relate to one another.
Mike Holt’s presentation style is informative, practical, useful, informal, and applicable for today’s electrical professional. Just like all of Mike’s textbooks, it contains hundreds of full-color illustrations to help you see the safety requirements of the National Electrical Code in practical use, as they apply to today’s electrical installations.
The Code is updated every three years to accommodate new electrical products and materials, changing technologies, and improved installation techniques, and to make editorial refinements to improve readability and application. Keeping up with the Code should be the goal of everyone involved in the safety of electrical installations. This includes electrical installers, contractors, owners, inspectors, engineers, instructors, and others concerned with electrical installations
