I want to install solar power in my home bu there are lots of procedural and technical requirements.
These are detailed in AS5033 but it costs about $300 to purchase. Any idea where I can read a copy of it?
The same applies to AS3000. Where can I view that?

Copies of the Standard are available from the national library, and you should be able to interloan them from your local public library if you are not in Wellington or Auckland. To be honest, if you want to go either off grid or down the grid tied route, you would be best talking to someone who retails the kit or a specialist sparky for advice. Suggest you go have a look at WhatPowerCrisis in South Auckland  or Eco Innovation in New Plymouth.

Disclosure I have carried out work for Eco Innovation in the past.

Thanks knoydart. I tried the public libraries but did not think of the interloan from the national library.
There are some vendors offering kits and I am comunicating with one now. But I like to get my information from the source documents or at least link it to them. I think there is a lot of interpretation or opinion on this subject.
I will try interloan next week
