Transformer and PV Grounding Electrode Systems
Presented by Scott Davis

Transformers and Photovoltaic Systems need a grounding electrode system. It is in the Code anyways!

On the plans and in the field, many times what is accomplished is overkill or insufficient. Needless, difficult, and costly mistakes are made in the hallowed name of Grounding. We will examine the grounding electrode system side of commercial/industrial transformers and residential photovoltaic projects.
This is a small portion of the 8 hour Grounding vs. Bonding course we offered previously. Therefore, if you remember everything we covered in those classes… you can skip this one!  

Since Article 250 remains consistently misapplied, violated, and misinterpreted it is always a good and interesting topic.

Simple explanations and straightforward graphics are key to understanding what is needed for safety and compliance. We will have both!

As always, you are encouraged to attend with the objective of taking the best information back to share as your own wisdom. Every time we examine this topic, we all find valuable nuggets we had misplaced or overlooked in the Electrical Code Mine.
