    But I would say that under 2014 and any other code besides 2020, you can treat them like you would multiple service disconnects, if the AHJ doesn't have an opinion.

    Bond the solar EGC to the main service EGC at the service entrance but leave neutral unbonded in the PV disconnect.
    I'll guess this is the 705/230 quagmire we've been hearing about

    They just can't seem to get it right. I thought the first draft was basically fine. And then just when they finally decided to clarify things in 705, the other CMP went ahead and changed 230.71 and created new confusion.

    I still was not able to find 2020 second draft found first draft though.

    What is the proabability that second draft would be modified into something different i.e third draft? Can they still do that?

    The second draft should be further down the page.

    2nd draft will not change in substance, only to fix errors.

    Ok but 705.11(D) Grounding and Bonding from second draft apply to disconnecting means mentioned in 705.11(E). However 705.11(E) is about connections not about disconnecting means. No disconnecting means 705.11(E). Am I missing something?

    You're missing that (D) refers to (F), not (E).
