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.

How efficient is your lighting? Lighting consumes nearly 35 percent of the electricity used in commercial buildings. FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities can help you reduce energy use and costs while improving your visual environment.

Available to existing facilities and new construction projects, the Lighting Incentive Program is offered to Ohio commercial, industrial, governmental and institutional customers of Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison (FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities) to encourage participants to install high-efficiency lighting equipment.

Heyman joined Sodexo in 2017 and handles Cuyahoga County as an Outreach Representative for Sodexo representing the FirstEnergy Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. FirstEnergy pays Sodexo to be an impartial administer of the Commercial & Industrial Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. Sodexo is responsible for helping the 3 Ohio Electric Utilities FirstEnergy owns (The Illuminating Company, Ohio Edison & Toledo Edison) to achieve annual savings targets set & monitored by the PUCO.
