Sample text

Of course, some individuals (like those rural dwellers who are at the end of the electrical line and see outages that last for days) still opt for the utility-interactive, battery-based system. The most you can do is share your knowledge with customers to get them thinking about the pros and cons of different PV systems so they can make an informed decision. Unless the customer really has no preference, you can’t make the decision for her. The customer isn’t connected to the grid If a customer is constructing a remote home or isn’t connected to the grid in a current building but wants to make a change from her current system, the first type of PV system you should suggest is a stand-alone, battery-based one.

However, many utilities have requirements that may exceed those found in the NEC®, so you need to understand those requirements and how they affect your installation. Utility interconnection The point at which a PV system interconnects with a utility grid is often referred to as the point of common connection (POCC). This is an electrical connection that can take various forms depending on the size of the PV system and the electrical equipment already located on-site. When connecting an inverter to the utility, you need to let the utility know what you’re doing in order to get its approval.

Even with this flexibility, you need to carefully consider the PV array you design and the components you connect to it. In Chapter 11, I show you what you need to consider in the sizing and design process, from evaluating the energy consumption at the site to the utility requirements for connecting to the grid to the calculations used when matching a PV array to an inverter. Battery-based systems Before you can size a battery-based system (either utility-interactive or standalone), you must evaluate the energy consumption used by the loads that will be powered via the battery bank.
