Part III: Joint Use NESC Compliance
FEBRUARY 20, 2020
2:00-3:00 PM EST
In this third and final session, participants will learn about the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) rules that apply to the design and construction of joint use overhead lines. Participants will see specific examples of pole attachments that require consideration of NESC spacings at the attachments and along spans, as well as clearances from ground and other structures. Participants will also see examples of physical loadings from pole attachments that require consideration of structure strength.
- Compliance with NESC clearance & spacing requirements
(Part 2 – Overhead Lines)
- Compliance with NESC strength requirements
