This one-day class will clearly explain and summarize the intent and application of the National Electrical Code relevant to photovoltaic (PV) solar electric systems and cover significant updates to the 2014 National Electric Code that pertain to PV systems. Because the photovoltaic industry is undergoing extremely rapid growth and new technologies are constantly being introduced to the market, Articles 690 and 705 of the National Electrical Code incorporate a large quantity of important changes. The primary focus of this course will be inspecting plansets and system installations of grounded and ungrounded PV systems for Code-compliant equipment specifications, grounding systems, conductor installation, labeling, overcurrent protection, disconnects, rapid shutdown, ground-fault and arc-fault protection devices. Although many licensed electrical contractors and Code Officials in North Carolina have not previously had experience with Solar PV systems, as the PV industry expands more training is required to both safely install and inspect these systems. Early Registration Cost: $200* (lunch included) *Cost after April 8th: $250 Students in UNC system Early Registration Cost: $175** **Student Cost after April 8th: $200 Continuing Education Credits Offered: 8 hours for the NCBEEC, NCDOI CE 8 Electrical, 8 PDH, 8 hours NABCEP CE All attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion.
