I am starting to build a 600-watt solar panel system. I have a small workshop, that used to be an office. I am planning to install it there. I plan to install backups, a charge controller in an enclosure. I will also be installing a disconnect, a breaker panel for 8 breakers and a few outlets, a meter socket, (only for KWH use tracking for personal use), and a few outlets.
I have heard that NEC code requires overcurrent devices ( a part of what I'm installing ) to not be located near flammable or combustible material.
Is carpeting an exception? If not, what can I do other than installing new flooring?
