    Minimum distance from ground mount array to pool? NEC 680? 690? Who knows?

    Hi all,

    I need to know if there's a minimum distance requirement between a ground mounted PV array and a swimming pool.

    I didn't see anything specific in either 680 or 690...and it might be a building code that changes with every town.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Great Question...and there is nothing in the electrical code that addresses this ...yet.

    Closest rule is 680.22(D) for "Other Outlets"...but of course a PV System is not an Outlet. I would recommend, for Safety to follow this rule for any Interconnected Electric Power Production Source.
