IREC: Model Inspection Checklist for Residential Rooftop PV

This document provides basic guidelines for reviewing the permit plan application and inspecting most residential rooftop PV systems. The document includes solar-specific code requirements, but there may be other structural or electrical requirements that apply as well. While not all-inclusive, these guidelines outline the major steps of the plan review and field inspection processes for the majority of residential rooftop systems. AHJs can use this document to create custom jurisdictional checklists with modifications to match specific state and local code requirements. The checklists can then be used by reviewers, inspectors, and installers.
