Learn about energy storage systems and their integration with photovoltaic (PV) systems or use as a stand-alone system. How are these products tested? What standards apply? What are the current related code development activities, and how can you participate? Information will be provided on the latest research, codes, and standards development. The specific code requirements in the Electrical, Fire, and Residential codes will be discussed. Be prepared for the new requirements in the California codes that become effective July 1st for these products. AB 546, a new California bill that aims to streamline permitting processes for energy storage, will also be discussed, as well as tools currently available to assist in plan checking and inspections.
