ASES Webinar: PV Systems and the 2020 National Electrical Code
This special workshop taught by Joh Wiles of NMSU will start at 10am each day for the two-day session and last 4-5 each day of the event. The course costs $150 per person and offers NABCEP credits if completed in full.

The workshop will cover the 2020 National Electrical Code (NEC) requirements for designing and installing PV systems. A basic knowledge of the NEC is required since Code basics will not be addressed. Conductor selection, ampacity calculations and overcurrent devices and disconnects will be covered. How to do it correctly and what not to do are items on the agenda. The focus will be on utility-interactive systems. 2020 NEC requirements in major areas related to PV systems will be addressed. Electricians, electrical inspectors, electrical engineers and PV installers should attend. PV installers will receive 6 hours of NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) continuing education credits for the course.

Please contact John if you have any questions or concerns about the content of this online workshop at jwiles@nmsu.edu.

John Wiles
@New Mexico State University
John has been involved with electrical power, the US National Electrical Code(NEC) and Underwriters Laboratories(UL) Safety Standards for more than three decades. He has a MS degree in Electrical Engineering, is a member of several UL Standard Technical Panels dealing with PV power systems and assists in the development of the NEC. He is also an ASES Fellow. In 1961, he updated the electrical system in his family home from a single 15-amp circuit to a new 100-amp service with 12 circuits; all permitted and inspected in accordance with NEC requirements. He designed and installed his first PV system in 1984 and lived in a home with an off-grid PV system for 16 years in an urban subdivision. Since 1989, he has worked at the Southwest Technology Development Institute at New Mexico State University (NMSU). He continues his PV activities as a part time employee at NMSU now working on the development of a DC microgrid laboratory facility.
