Solar electric power systems have been commercially available for over 30 years. Building codes of 30 years ago were quite different than they are now, especially as they apply to solar power systems. Existing, older systems that were likely never permitted or inspected by the local building departments might need inspecting or remodeling. The photo below shows a solar electric power system that was installed about 10 years ago. As you can see, there are many exposed conduits, the battery bank is not contained in an enclosure, and there is an instant hot water heater right in the middle of the installation.
With the advancements in solar equipment technology, power system remodels are becoming increasingly popular simply because they have become much more affordable. In the photo below, NewGrid added solar capacity to this power system, cleaned it up, and brought it up to the applicable building codes for the locality. The client was thrilled to have a cleaner power system that is now up to the latest building codes and has been permitted and inspected by the local building officials.
