    What color should the POSITIVE and NEGATIVE wires be, according to the NEC?

    Also, at which point in the DC system should the GROUND and NEGATIVE be bonded? I have seperate ground rods for the DC and the AC/inverter side, should there be only ONE ground/neutral bonding for BOTH sides, at the AC load panel? I've been researching John Wiles HP articles, havent found this answer yet.

    Everything bonded together at the inverter to the ground rod.

    If more than one rod is used--Bond all ground rods together
