Microinverter & AC PV Module Application Guide - Summary
For microinverters and AC (Alternating Current) PV (Photovoltaic) modules, a need exists for clear and consistent installation methods and code interpretations, which enable safer, more efficient installations, and reduction in the cost to own a solar system. This Summary guide promotes the aforementioned by providing information about microinverter and AC PV module technologies, nationally recognized listing standards, listing processes, and industry-accepted methodology for installation, in compliance with the NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) 70: NEC (National Electric Code).
This Summary guide provides an overview of microinverter technology, installation practices that comply with NEC Article 690 (2008 and 2011 edition code cycles, except where so noted), listing standards used by NRTLs (Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory) to list the equipment for the application, NRTL listing process, and the markings and instructions for this type of equipment.
While this Summary Guide is FREE to everyone, a complete copy of the Application Guide is also available - pricing is based on user segment:
- $94.95 for Integrators, Manufacturers, BoS Manufacturers
- $29.95 for AHJs, Inspectors
- FREE to SolarTech Members
The $94.95 is available for download as well as the SolarTech Members FREE download as part of our Membership benefits.
The special pricing of $29.95 for AHJs, Building Officials and Inspectors will follow later in the month as we finalize a distribution channel partnership most appropriate for that user segment. Until then, any entity who falls into this category who wishes to purchase the Application Guide can contact Wendy Boyle, SolarTech Director of Operations at email@example.com
