Could any one tell me what size wire I need to run from my array to ground .
I have 10g PV wire for my -+ could I just mark a black POV wire with green tape

    I thing 6 or 8 gauge s usually called for, 6 gauge bare ground wire is reasonably cheap and can often be bought by the foot.
    Home system 4000 watt (Evergreen) array standing, with 2 Midnite Classic Lites,  Midnite E-panel, Prosine 1800 and Exeltech 1100, 660 ah 24v ForkLift battery. Off grid for @16 of last 17 years. Assorted other systems, and to many panels in the closet to not do more...lol

    Would I run the bare copper wire in my 1” conduit to the combiner box ?
    And how many 10 g pv wires am I aloud in 1” conduit
