Run PV wiring on Power Poles
Question for the group here. I'm looking at doing a large new solar field on top of the hill behind my cabin (much better solar exposure). It's ~150' from the top of the hill down to my cabin. The only problem is that it is very steep (too steep for trenching equipment), and the hill is full of granite, so trenching is not an option. I'm wondering if running the 2-3 PV strings through the air would work - via (2) power poles. The hill is full of Juniper trees, but none over 30-40', so running the wire over 50' from the tops of the two poles should be free from any obstructions. Any drawbacks to this? Does Code allow for something like this?
