Solar Photovoltaic Systems Workshop Coincident with the IEEE Green Technologies Conference in April

IAEI, the International Association of Electrical Inspectors, is set to hold a Photovoltaic System Requirements workshop that will provide information about the installation and inspection of Solar Photovoltaic Systems, including an overview of minimum code requirements and major design issues that are related to Solar Photovoltaic Systems.

The material presented, which will be based primarily on the requirements described in the 2011 edition of NEC’s Article 690, will include system types, disconnecting means locations, requirements for roof mounted and ground mounted systems, equipment ratings, and also the grounding and boding of Solar Photovoltaic Systems. .

Bill McGovern, the Electrical Inspection Services Supervisor for the City of Plano, Texas, will be the presenter at the workshop. McGovern represents the IAEI as an alternate member on CMP-2, serves as Chairman on the ICC Electrical Exam Development, and serves as a committee member on various NECA National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS). In addition, he served in the United States Marine Corps as an Aircraft Electrician, completed an electrical apprenticeship in the IBEW, and holds a Master Electricians license in the State of Texas.

The workshop will take place from 8:55 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on April 4, 2014 and is included in the technical conference registration. Those who are not participating in the technical conference may attend the workshop for a nominal $75 fee.
