NEC 2017 – Article Article 547: Electrical System Design in Agricultural and Horticultural Grow Facilities

COURSE SUMMARY: Article 547 covers electrical installations in Agricultural Buildings. Typically these types of buildings involve excessive dust and livestock. Ohio has recently approved growing facilities for medical marijuana which could partially fall under this category if there is excessive duct. Horticultural Lighting must be full spectrum and requires a high level of lighting. Special load calculation considerations and derating conductor ampacity for number of current carrying conductors and heat apply. This course will give a better understanding of the load calculations and connections within these buildings with examples and detailed sketches.
