NEC Overview (2017 NEC)
The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the most thoroughly detailed Code for installing PV systems in the world. Join us for a brief overview.
Exponential Growth of Solar and Energy Storage
The solar industry has been growing at such a fast pace, that if it kept growing this fast, earth would be completely covered with PV and look like the Death Star in less than a century. This is driven by cheap PV and a need for cleaner and cheaper energy.
Rapid Shutdown of PV Systems on Buildings came into the US Codes in the 2014 version of the NEC and has been changing ever since. This provision was put in place so that firefighters will feel safe to save buildings with PV on them.

Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) podcast with CCA inventor Paul Fenn Part 1
Paul Fenn of Local Power came up with the idea for the Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) law at the University of Chicago. The CCA law has been passed in over 1500 municipalities. Utilities spent millions trying to stop CCAs. Bloomberg Business Week said Paul is the "utility industry’s enemy number 1”. David does not kill Goliath here. His CCA law does not do away with utilities and still uses them for lines, poles and billing. This is part 1 of a 2 part series.

Great way to learn about Solar and Energy Storage on the go
I am always looking for a way to learn when I am doing other doings and this podcast is the only one I know that teaches technical PV and Energy Storage material from top experts and also is often funny and keeps me entertained. I need to know this stuff and its free! If only you could get NABCEP Credit for listening to a podcast.
