Changing Codes & Grid Connections

The final connection between a utility-interactive photovoltaic (PV) system and the electrical utility grid is an area of importance to PV system designers and installers. Due to the varying sizes of PV systems and configurations of existing service-entrance equipment, these connections vary significantly among PV systems. Differences in Section 690.64 of the 2005 and 2008 editions of the National Electrical Code (NEC) make these variations even more complex.
