Michael Johnston, executive director of Standards and Safety for the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), recently addressed standards for installing and maintaining and inspecting Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment at an educational seminar co-sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Electrical Contractors Association San Diego Chapter.
The event was hosted at NECA's San Diego Electrical Industry Joint Apprenticeship Training Center for ICC, NECA and International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) members and governmental staff. The seminar provided the attendees with the essentials of electrical vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installation that is consistent with safe, sound and successful growth of the EV market.
Before coming to NECA, Johnston was with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) where he served as the long-time director of Education, Codes and Standards. He has become a popular technical instructor, teaching numerous courses on the National Electrical Code (NEC).
NECA contractors are at the forefront in training, research, and technology-providing expert installations in the rapidly expanding industry of Electric Vehicle charging stations.
