74 students have taken this course
The 2017 National Electric Code (NEC) is here and the adoption cycle has begun. This course is jam-packed with 2017 NEC insight and interpretation. Sean compares and contrasts the 2014 NEC to the 2017 NEC, with special emphasis on the rapid shutdown and interconnection requirements of the Code.
PV is on the cover of the NEC and there are new articles affecting the industry, such as 691 Large-Scale PV Electric Supply Stations, 706 Energy Storage Systems, 710 Stand-Alone Systems, 712 DC Micro-Grid Systems.
NABCEP has also now adopted the code and NEC 2017 is now in use on the NABCEP PV Installation Professional Certification Exam. This course is now completely updated with videos and materials needed to prepare for the new NABCEP exam covering the 2017 NEC.
There are many changes in the 2017 NEC. Everything that you thought you knew about grounding has functionally changed. 1500V systems, voltage and current definitions, labeling, be prepared!
