The problem with a book on solar is the manufactures are changing their equipment so quickly it's hard to keep up. What do you have going on, someone what a system designed?

Buzz, go ask the inspector for that place what he wants you to "make sure". Your'e likely to get stuff never seen in any code book (at least in 690), so impossible to find in a textbook as well.

Some will also actually wanna climb up on the roof to pick apart the wiring job and condemn your listed grounding clamps you used. Those are not the usual bunch who only look at the service connections and disco's, but they are out there....

When possible do not install panels on the roof. Poles work so much better for many reasons.
