Default When is a permit required

How big of a job would it have to be to require a wiring permit, if it is not grid tied. A low voltage system that preforms a task like water pumping, lighting, ect

If it is above 60 volts or so it needs a permit around here. Grid tied or not.

Permitting requirements are local. Check your state law that adopts the building code. If nothing there, look for a local ordinance, and it might be in the fee schedule.
