About this app

As more rooftop solar systems are installed across the U.S., municipalities and installers face numerous challenges ensuring quality and efficiency in the permitting and inspection process. To benefit permitting authorities and installers, and ultimately energy consumers who invest in solar, IREC released the first Model Inspection Checklist for Rooftop Photovoltaic (PV) Systems. This app is based on this release. Many municipalities are struggling to keep up with the increased number of PV permitting inspections; inspectors may not be familiar with PV installations and code requirements; and installers may not be aware of all the elements that need to be verified in order to pass a thorough inspection. Adoption of an inspection checklist provides benefits both to municipal staff and solar installers. This app will ensure compliance with permitting.
