    If you have to split your inverters between interconnection points they are separate systems, and a single inverter cannot connect to a service at more than one point or to more than one service.

    And someone else is chiming in with the polar opposite viewpoint, which looks like an attack on anything PV.

    I agree; this discussion has run its course, kinda like the flu. :D

    But they can and they do. Many municipalities will not issue a building permit if a connection to the grid is not part of the project. They cannot make you buy power but they can make you have a grid...

    No. Utilities do not have to buy your power. Household PV is great for reducing your electric bill, but for turning a profit, not so much. Many utilities have disincentives in place to discourage...

    I have always interpreted the rule as maximum 6 handles for DC for each inverter and 6 handles for AC. AC is usually not a problem because no matter how many inverters you have there typically is a...

    That much is true. Power factor is, by definition, between 0 and 1.
  9. Storage, yes; PV, no.

    Storage, yes; PV, no.

    Solar cannot be dependably used to avoid demand charges. One cannot be sure that a PV system will be running at high output during every 15 minute period of high demand, and it only takes one to...

    Do you know of a NEC article that addresses and regulates this case specifically? We had a lively discussion about it over on the Photovoltaic forum a while back but I don't think any language in the...

    So what is it, exactly, that you are trying to accomplish here? To convince me that batteries are always cheaper/more profitable than grid storage? To convince me to run out and buy everything I need...

    Couldn't it be that the yellow stripe is just so that the installer knows which wire is which at both ends of the run? If you are running three wire single phase, all you really need to know is which...

    Absolutely not.

    How are things going with that windmill, Mr. Quixote? :D

    Give it up, guys. He's never going to see it. Either that, or he sees it and he's never going to admit it.

    What's the prob? It's not a bug, it's a feature; now she can tell by the sound which door has a visitor.

    No, I am not. If your PV output over the course of a year (daily doesn't matter) is more than your usage, in many jurisdictions that have net metering you will lose the surplus at the end of the year...

    I don't know why I am doing this, but what the...? Either you did not comprehend a word of what I said or you are indeed screwing with me.

    I'll try once more and then I'm done.

    She is 87 years old and lives 300 miles away. I am not likely to get any more explanation than that. But she's happy with the result, whatever the guy did, so I'm happy, too.

    OK, I am officially blue in the face here.

    Net metering means that you push energy into the grid and pull it back out at no cost to you. You don't sell it and buy it back; there is no sales...

    Ask the manufacturer if their disco is rated at 100%. Additionally, some discos are 100% rated if unfused and 80% rated if fused. Square D is that way.
