2019

It is extremely disappointing that unlike NEC 2017 and its handbook, the NEC 2020 edition and its handbook are not available in PDF format that you can store on your computer as a digital resource and access it anywhere. The availability of NEC 2020 & its handbook only as a print and online digital format will make its access extremely difficult in the remote area with no or poor internet connection, unless one prefers to carry the "bulky" printed copy everywhere! It appears as we are working backwards instead of working towards "going green" to provide positive impact on the environmental foot print! According to me, the NFPA should provide the licensed pdf option for NEC 2020 & its handbook like they did for NEC 2017 & its handbook, which an be stored on the PC locally and also allow pdf mark-ups & comments.
