|Watch NFPA®'s interview with Donny Cook, Chief Electrical Inspector, Shelby County Department of Developmental Services, Shelby County, AL, to hear him discuss the 2011 NEC®.
"The NEC is truly everybody's Code. The NEC sets up a minimum basis for safety, and it reacts to the latest knowledge. If the general public understood how the latest NEC protects us all from electrical hazards, people would insist on it.
|Now that there are governmental incentives, more users will want to take advantage of these systems, and we need to ensure safety by making sure they're properly installed, inspected, and approved. The easy-to-use requirements in Article 694 help people make use of energy saving technologies.
Another timesaving solution in the 2011 NEC is the addition of new Article 399 containing prescriptive requirements for overhead distribution systems for large users. This allows designers, installers, and inspectors to conduct and approve an installation for non-utility-owned equipment based on the NEC. Time is money, and this expanded NEC coverage for premises wiring is extremely practical."
|Watch NFPA's interview with Donald Bliss, President & COO, NI2 Center for Infrastructure Expertise, to hear him discuss the benefits of the NEC, and its companion Handbook.
"The beauty of having the Handbook available is that it translates sometimes complex Code language into a day-to-day working language...It is really an essential companion to the National Electrical Code®."
Jim Pauley states:
"We're trying to accommodate a significant amount of electrical use in this country as well as growing in other countries. The 2011 NEC® has the ability to make sure that we carry forward in newer technologies such as solar or wind, and also to ensure that people can interact with these systems in a safe manner. Commentary in the 2011 NEC Handbook provides the opportunity to connect you between the Code text and what you would see in a real-life installation."
