The East TN Division IAEI presents:

2017 NEC Analysis of Changes

 
 

Hundreds of revisions in the 2017 NEC will have a direct impact on residential, commercial, and industrial installations. Added NEC articles broaden the Code's coverage of alternate energy sources and emerging technologies. Stay informed about vital changes and expansions with this accurate, authoritative program from the IAEI. Gain the latest knowledge about Code-compliant electrical design, installation, and inspection with this.

New 2017 Articles

  • Large-Scale Photovoltaic (PV) Electric Power Production Facility (New Article 691) covers systems that produce at least 5 megawatts (MW) of power, or enough to power 800+ U.S. homes.
  • Energy Storage Systems (New Article 706) governs ESS installation, disconnection, shutdown, and safety labeling.
  • Stand-Alone Systems (New Article 710) covers power production sources that are not connected to the grid, including PV and wind-powered systems.
  • Direct Current Microgrids (New Article 712) concerns independent energy distribution networks that allow the utilization of power from dc sources to direct-current loads. Microgrids are on the rise worldwide.

Other revisions to the 2017 NEC protect the public and workers from deadly hazards, including:

  • new labeling, such as detailed arc flash hazard warning on equipment, helps workers and supervisors assess electrical risks.
  • new minimum space clearances for equipment installation clarify the safeguards needed to protect installers and maintainers.
  • fixed Resistance and Electrode Industrial Process Heating Equipment (New Article 425) presents needed regulations for industry.
  • revised provisions for AFCI and GFCI protection improve electrical and fire safety in homes.
