  • Best Practices for Renewable  Energy in a Tribal Community Arizona Department of Commerce  Energy Office  September , 2008
  • A Renewable  Energy  System within a rural  Community must  contain the following in the  design and application: Safety, Reliability, Durability, Affordability
  • Building Durability into Renewable Energy  Applications: ‐ A Renewable Energy System must be protected  from; Sun, Rain, Snow, Wind, Hail, Dust, People,  Insects, Animals, Heat. Etc ‐ Provide a Harden Renewable Energy System that  can withstand time, carry reduce maintenance and  done  right the first time. ‐ We must consider that a Renewable Energy  Systems it is not a light residential application!  
  • Reliability in a Renewable Energy System Potential Barriers facing reliability:  Lack of   Building Codes, Skilled Trade Providers, Inspections  by Utility & Building Officials, A Current Electrical   Distribution Systems
  • National Codes and Standards for Renewable  Energy Sources Institute of Electrical and Electronics  Engineers : “IEEE 1547” – “Standard for  Interconnecting Distributed Resources  with Electric Power  Systems”
  • UL Listed & Approved equipment Local building inspectors look for a listing  mark ( such as UL, ETL or CSA ) to ensure  the equipment as been tested for it’s  application.
  • Underwriters Laboratory (UL) ‐ UL  1741  Provides testing and listing of the  following renewable energy  hardware: Invertors, Convertors,  Controllers and interconnection  equipment for use with distributed  energy resources
  • National Electric Code (NEC)  Published by the National Fire  Protection Association‐ The  foremost U.S. organization that  addresses electrical equipment and  wiring safety.  NEC‐ Article 690‐ “Solar  Photovoltaic Systems”
  • National Electric Code ( NEC) Art.690  The National Electric Code is seen as the  minimum safety requirements‐ Current   NEC editions are 2005,  2008
  • National Electric Code  2005, 2008 Once again provides the NEC  provides the minimum  electrical  safety requirements and is not a  design guide.
  • Solar PV and Solar Thermal Combination Arizona Registrar of Contractors has an  estimated 15 various license classification  for  Solar installations 
  • Arizona Contractor Licenses for Solar Applications A‐19 Swimming Pools, Includes Solar C‐05 Residential Specialty‐ Solar L‐05 Commercial Specialty‐ Solar K‐05 Combination Specialty‐ Solar C‐11 Electrical Residential‐ Solar L‐11 Electrical Commercial‐ Solar K‐11 Combination Residential/Commercial Electrical C‐37 Plumbing includes Solar‐Residential C‐39 HVAC includes Solar‐ Residential L‐74‐ Boilers includes Solar Commercial L‐77‐ Plumbing includes Solar Commercial L‐78‐ Solar Plumbing Liquid Systems Commercial L‐79‐ HVAC includes Solar Commercial
  • Net Metering  Net  Metering is a low‐cost and easily  administered means of promoting direct  customer investment in renewable energy 
  • The Interconnection Agreement Standards that specify the technical ,  terms and policy requirements that the  utilities and DG system owners must  operate under.
  • Solar Thermal and Solar PV  Combined Becoming  a very common  installation
  • Seek to establish safety first! Is the current Electrical System safe  or should it be replaced for safety  reasons?
  • Apache Junction, Arizona September 13,  2008 On Saturday, September 13, during a Habitat for Humanity  groundbreaking at Ironwood Trails in Apache Junction,  Habitat announced that because of the example set forth  by the City of Apache Junction, they would be making each  home LEED certified. They are too late in making the  “community” LEED certified but they can still individually  certify each home given that they build each home Energy  Star and of course due to the SRP donated Solar Panels.  This is a wonderful achievement for Habitat and the  community of Apache Junction.
  • Changing the Way we build   Homes in a Rural Community ‐ Solar Ready Home: Solar PV & Thermal, Roof designed to carry the  additional load, Roof penetrations, Pipe and Conduit services in place ‐Passive Solar Features designed into the home positioning; Shading,  Window Types & Locations, True South, Air Flow ‐ Stick Built vs. SIP, ICF‐ A House in a box, Mold Issues ‐ Controlled Ventilation vs. Passive Ventilation  ‐ Forced Air (Heating/Cooling) vs. Radiant (Heating/Cooling) ‐ A Renewable Energy Home along with a Net‐Zero Design for placement in  rural communities ‐100 amp Electrical Service Limitations on all homes with energy efficiency  lighting, appliacances ‐Maintenance Free or DIY maintenance strategies on lighting and  appliances, Home Owner Manuel, Long‐term Energy Source
