2020 NEC® Changes: Solar PV Systems and Interconnected Power Systems

Photovoltaic (PV) systems use the energy from the sun to generate electricity. This electricity can be used to power small, rooftop systems to large-scale utility operations and everything in between. This interactive, online course is designed to give you an overview of Article 690 Solar Photovoltaic Systems, and Article 705, Interconnected Electrical Power Production Sources of the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC®). Notable changes in the articles for photovoltaic systems and interconnected electric power production sources include changes to PV overcurrent protection, disconnecting means, and language for interconnection of electric power production sources.

William Brooks

Mr. Brooks has worked with utility-interconnected PV systems since the late 1980’s. He is a consultant to the PV industry on a variety of performance, troubleshooting, and training topics. Over the past 13 years, these training workshops have helped over 5,000 local inspectors and over 5,000 electricians and installers understand PV systems and how to properly install and inspect systems. His field troubleshooting skills have been valuable in determining where problems occur to focus training on those issues of greatest need. Mr. Brooks has written several important technical manuals for the industry that are now widely used in California and beyond. His experience includes work on Code Making Panel 4 for the National Electrical Code, Article 690, and IEEE utility interconnection standards for PV systems. He is also an active participant in Standards Technical Panels (STP) for UL1741 (Inverters), and UL1703 (PV Modules) and serves as task group lead for Fire Ratings and Grounding in UL 1703 STP. Mr. Brooks holds Bachelor and Master of Science Degrees in Mechanical Engineering from N.C. State University and is a Registered Professional Engineer in North Carolina and California.
