how to hook mc connectors in parallel
HI all. I am going to help upgrade a neighbors 12 volt off grid PV systems that supplies power to one of his outbuildings and the new 200 watt panels have MC connector pigtails. There will be five 11 amp (18.4 Vmp) parallel panels requiring a set of #2 AWG wires from the panels to the breaker box that supplies the charge controller. The distance is between 15 and 25 feet depending on wire routing. The panels will be mounted side by side in a single line and will cover 16 ft of roof. I understand the MC pigtails are 10 gauge and will need to be spliced under the panels into the 2 gauge wires. How is the best way to do this? There are no code inspectors to deal with but I want meet the intent of the code for safety considerations?
