What level of ground fault protection is required for the main overcurrent device supplying marinas and boat yards?

Blog Post created by jsargent Employee on Jun 27, 2018


In my recent NFPA Live session I went over the recently issued tentative interim amendments for the 2020 edition of the National Electrical Code. These TIAs have provided more options to comply with the ground-fault protection requirements for marina and boatyard electrical systems.


 In the above video I provide a bit of background on the evolution of this requirement.  NFPA Live is exclusively for NFPA members, but I'm sharing this excerpt with you. I hope you find some value in it.
