Andrew Truitt (Truitt Renewable Energy Consulting)
#SolarMOOC Lecture: Common NEC Violations in Residential PV Systems – Thursday, February 21, 2013
After completing his Bachelors of Science in Physics at UC Santa Cruz in 2002 and his Masters of Science in Renewable Energy Systems Technology at Loughbrough University in the U.K. in 2004, Andrew Truitt started his career in solar as a photovoltaic (PV) system installer in Berkeley, California. In 2006 Andrew joined Standard Solar in Gaithersburg, MD as its 5th employee, and was instrumental in growing the company as it developed into one of the leading residential and commercial PV system integrators in the Mid-Atlantic region.
A NABCEP-certified PV installer since 2007, Andrew has installed, designed or managed over 800 commercial and residential PV systems (over 10 megawatts total) in California, the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia. Andrew is now an active participant in the NABCEP organization, sitting on multiple program development committees as well as the Board of Directors. In October of 2010 Andrew moved to Denver, Colorado and joined SRA International, where he leads the PV System commissioning program and supports the DOE’s Solar 3.0 initiative. Andrew also founded Truitt Renewable Energy Consulting, where he provides PV installation and fire safety training, design review services, and other PV industry and system construction related guidance. Andrew’s mission is to facilitate the installation of high-quality PV systems with an emphasis on safety, power production and customer service.
Clearly, Andrew Truitt offers a level of expertise that is hard to rival, and considering that this lecture is derived from a course that was written for the education of inspectors, it will definitely be a highly valuable lecture for anyone involved in the development of residential solar PV projects.
