Thursday, October 8, 2020
3:30 PM – 3:40 PM EDT
As energy technologies continue to develop rapidly, codes and standards continue to evolve in order to optimize the safety of installations and reflect learnings from the field. The 2020 National Electrical Code, published by the National Fire Protection Association, includes some important revisions that will have a major effect on installations of solar PV systems as well as related installations including energy storage. This session will review the significant changes to the 2020 National Electrical Code for the solar and energy communities of practice, review the practical implications of the changes, and provide a glimpse for the topics of interest in the energy domain for the 2023 National Electrical Code as the development process begins in 2020.
