This course covers the elements required to perform field inspections of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including observing the structural mounting, fire service access and electrical aspects needed for a code-compliant installation. Attendees learn how to confirm that the submitted plans were properly followed and recognize the common field mistakes that installers make with solar PV systems. A checklist is provided to help guide the inspector through the review process. Attendees learn specific details on what code-compliant field installations include for residential and small commercial solar PV installations. Energy storage systems (ESS) are also covered as these systems are commonly included with or added to PV systems. As solar PV systems are constantly changing and improving, this course updates enforcement on the latest codes and design trends that impact field installation of this equipment.
