7 INSPECTIONS Photovoltaic systems are subject to multiple inspections, dependent on the type of systems installed and the attachment methods. Generally, the following inspections are applicable to most systems: 1. ROUGH INSPECTION: a. Framing Attachment inspection. This inspection includes any reinforcement of the existing roof structural members and the structural attachments (lag bolts) of the roof top PV panel support attachments. This is required prior to the installation of the roof flashings and panels. This is the most important structural inspection as it verifies the attachments necessary to achieve the wind loading requirements of the system. For ground mounted systems, an additional footing inspection may be required. b. Roof flashing inspection. This inspection includes the installation of the roof jack flashings and/or the moisture proofing of the roof attachments. c. Electrical rough in inspection. This inspection is the actual electrical rough inspection of the conduit and wiring methods, wire size and type, electrical connections, etc. Note: Roof mounted conduit IS NOT ALLOWED as per the City of Downey Municipal Code: conduit shall be run in the attic space and/or under the eaves when possible. Conduit to be painted the color of the surface it is attached to. (As noted on approved plan per Planning Department Approval) 2. FINAL INSPECTION: a. Placards/Labels. This inspection verifies the required placards and labels required by the electrical codes, utility provider, and the Downey Fire Department (DFD) requirements for firefighter safety. b. Grounding and Bonding inspection. This inspection is performed after the panels and a system component are installed and verifies the grounding and bonding integrity of the system. This inspection usually is combined with the rough electrical inspection. c. Photovoltaic final and release. This inspection is performed when all components are installed and functioning and serves as the utility release for the electrical interconnect. Failure to obtain the final electrical inspection will result in the utility not accepting your power into the utility power grid system. 7
