Having Sean White and Bill Brooks together in one presentation to guide us through the 2023 NEC changes was invaluable for quickly understanding the new code requirements. I heartily recommend this course to anyone who wants an excellent overview of 2023 NEC code changes targeting renewable energy; specifically solar PV, ESS, as well as advances in Power Control and Energy Management systems. Although 2023 hasn't been adopted in NJ (our home state), we service other states (CO, MA, NC, ...); and participate in municipal and federal projects where 2023 has. So this is absolutely necessary for us to know. We send our sincere thanks to Sean White, Bill Brooks and Brit Heller for an excellent presentation. We look forward to many more! Thomas R.
