“Inspection Requests and Inspection Criterion”

Once all permits to construct the solar installation have been issued and the system has been installed, the system must be inspected before final approval is granted for the solar system. On-site inspections can be scheduled by contacting the Building and Safety Department as follows:

Inspection requests received via telephone within business hours are typically scheduled for the next business day. An emailed inspection request received any time during normal business hours are typically scheduled for the next business day. Please note, emailed inspection requests may be sent after hours up until 7:00 A.M, and the inspection will still be accommodated that day. Emailed requests received after 7:00 A.M., will be scheduled for the following business day. Please note, Building and Safety policy is to provide any project that has requested an inspection a two hour inspection time window. However, to confirm the two-hour window for the arrival of the inspector, please contact your inspector at (818) 224-1600 between 7:30 A.M. – 9:00 A.M. the morning of your scheduled inspection.

The typical inspection criterion can be viewed via “Form 10” as well as within Appendix 3 “Tool Kit 7 of the California Solar Permitting Guidebook.”
