Solar Standards manual


#1

I am looking to put all the pieces of a home solar system together and hopefully do it right the first time.
A best practices manual for solar systems??

Hi @Solarguy

I have a couple initials questions.
Are you an electrician?
What country/state are you in?
When you say “home solar system”, is this to power your whole home, off-grid? Or grid connected.

Whether off-grid or on-grid, installing a solar systems for your home is not a DIY proposition.

I’ll point you to the Australian Clean Energy Council guidelines, which are the best practice guide, but these are for experienced electricians:

Hi Brian

Those are the standards that we use in Australia, although they are quite specific to Australia and New Zealand. I’m afraid I can’t direct you to ones you use in the States. Perhaps @Ekelly234 knows?
