MARCH 2, 2018
SEBANE in partnership with the IAEI (International Association of Electrical Inspectors), CED Greentech, and MassCEC (Massachusetts Clean Energy Center) hosted the most up-to-date professional training available on Photovoltaic Systems and the 2017 National Electrical Code on March 1, 2018. Solar manufacturers and installers, electrical and building inspectors, electricians, distributors, developers, and other solar professionals gathered at CED Greentech for a great day of presentations and panel discussions.
Leading experts Bill Brooks, P.E., Brooks Engineering, and Matt Piantedosi, The Cadmus Group joined us again for a deep dive into major changes in the new 2017 code, including rapid shutdown, interconnection, and solar + storage, along with compliance statistics one year into the code cycle in Massachusetts, and changes to the code we can expect in 2019 and 2020. This year, the program was enriched by the addition of local electrical and building inspectors and solar product manufacturers to our speaker and panelist line-up.
Peter Diamond, acting President of MEIA-MA and RI, and Town of Norfolk Electrical Inspector, and Bruce Dempsey, Town of Lexington Building Inspector, shared detailed insights and perspectives on inspector requirements and installer preparation. Premiere solar manufacturing sponsors IronRidge, Panasonic, SolarEdge, LG, and Solar-Log, showcased how their products can be used to design code compliant photovoltaic systems.
A SINCERE THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT, AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO MATT PIANTEDOSI/CADMUS GROUP AND RICK D'AMATO/IAEI FOR THEIR ASSISTANCE AND LEADERSHIP IN CURATING AN OUTSTANDING PROGRAM. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING TOGETHER AGAIN!
