International Association of Electrical Inspectors Magazine by Subject

IAEIcoverJohn Wiles gets dozens of questions a week on PV systems and the National Electrical Code® (NEC®) from PV vendor/installers, PV manufacturers, PV systems integrators, electrical contractors, electricians, electrical inspectors, and homeowners. Many of these questions are repetitive. John uses these questions as the basis for his articles in IAEI News.

Rather than rewrite the answers to the frequently asked questions, John has indexed the IAEI articles (right column).  Each one is linked to the appropriate PDF file of the relevant article. The IAEI Edition Number is composed of the months in the issue (Mar-Apr), for example, March/April. The numeral indicates the year (05) means 2005. So the March/April 2005 edition is: Mar-Apr05.
