CE516: 2014 National Electrical Code® and PV Systems

NABCEP CE Hours:  3 hours (click for details). The National Electrical Code® drives industry-wide best practices as well as product development cycles of PV component manufacturers, so whether you’re an installer, designer, manufacturer, engineer, or building official, it’s critical to understand the changes in each code cycle.  This on-demand training addresses significant changes in the 2014 Code that impact PV system design and installation, for systems ranging from battery-based off-grid to large utility-scale solar farms – the 2014 NEC® has new mandates for all of them.  Further NABCEP hours information found under Certification section below.
