Thank you for your time.
I like to keep up with the latest news and if it has anything to do with storage then I am always alert to any articles you write to see if they would apply to the industry.

I think if we talk about just a plain old garage, the electrical systems might not be of any issue. However, if we were to factor in other amenities like fuel storage, repair areas and so on, then I am pretty sure that the overall system will be a challenging one to build. It might be more complicated than usual, as several safety issues need to be taken into consideration in order to ensure a zero percent mishap environment for the occupants there. That is why when we wish to address the issue of electrical setups and its components, we have to thoroughly see the particular situation that we are currently dealing with before we can come to a conclusion whether it will be a simple one or something complicated and challenging.
The main issue is safety, especially when you have electricity, battery storage and fuel in one place. This is why the Code is in place and that it is essential for the AHJ to enforce the Code and NEC requirements.
