    PV and the NEC presents a straightforward explanation of the National Electrical Code (NEC) in everyday language.

    Used throughout the United States and many other countries, the NEC is the world’s most detailed set of electrical codes pertaining to photovoltaic (PV) systems. This new edition is based on the 2023 NEC, with most of the interpretations and material staying true long after. It interprets the distinct differences between previous versions of the NEC and the 2023 NEC and clarifies how these code changes relate specifically to PV installations. It includes Energy Storage Systems (ESS) and EV to Grid (EV2G).

    Written by two of the leading authorities and educators in the field, this book will be a vital resource for solar professionals, as well as anyone preparing for a solar certification exam.
