Lesson 9 Discussion
Activity Details
Assignment Post original entry:

We talked in class about applicable codes that govern the PV systems interconnection to the utility grid. Based on previous discussions, we learned that PV systems classification can include more specific market sector such as:
  1. Residential rooftop for grid-tied application
  2. Utility Scale PV installations
  3. Shared solar for communities
  4. Solar installation for rural off-grid application
In this lesson, we ask our solar professionals to discuss how the point of connection and interconnection codes might restrict the size of PV systems for different sectors.

Discuss specific grid interconnection considerations for one of the options. Support your discussion with facts (you may research the same solar installation example you selected for previous discussions). Hint: the point of connection of the grid might have limitations.

Post comments:

Respond to two different opinions of others' posts. (For example, if you choose Option 1, you need to respond to one post for Option 2 and another post for Option 3 or 4.)
