The alterations were decided on by the EL Standards Committee, on which the Clean Energy Council CEC sits alongside representatives of other stakeholders as electrical safety bodies, fire brigade representatives, training organisations, and related industry bodies. The changes to AS relate to wiring, labeling, disconnection devices, earthing, and system documentation and commissioning. Interestingly and relatedly , one of the major changes—the requirement to use heavy-duty conduit around all DC wiring—will raise the difficulty level of the installation of conventional, centralised inverter systems. This change will have virtually no effect on the installation of AC solar systems to the same degree, as the DC wiring in such systems is significantly shorter. The July AS standard changes are outlined below.
