Following an introduction to the benefits of electrification, this course will review the requirements of IECC Appendix RA (Solar-Ready Provisions) along with related requirements including mandatory access and set back areas required by the Fire Code of New York State in Section 1204 Solar Photovoltaic Power Systems. The course will walk through several examples and ask attendees to determine whether the solar-ready provisions apply to a particular building, given its type, orientation, roof design and other considerations. The course will also review examples of how to fit in the required solar ready zone considering obstructions and required setbacks. Example documentation will also be reviewed. Finally, the course will cover the electric vehicle service equipment capable requirements of NYStretch and how adopting these provisions will help with the electrification of New York’s transportation system.
