Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors
Solar Power World magazine featured LightWave Solar in their July 2016 issue as part of their Top 500 U.S. Solar Contractors list. We installed the Vissolis project in Oak Ridge last year.

In case you have trouble reading the magazine image above, here is the text:

Solar Power World asked us, “What’s the best way to establish functional relationships with local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs)?”

Maintaining relations with inspectors is an important part of providing turn-key services to customers.  If you think an inspector has misinterpreted an NEC issue, don’t be shy about asking him questions.  Always approach an inspector with respect; they are the authority with jurisdiction, and interpretation of the NEC is their responsibility. Don’t speak in generalities, be specific.  Have you had this aspect of your installation approved by another inspector they may know? It never hurts to get to know the inspector better if you will be in his jurisdiction frequently. Does he like to fish? Does he have grandkids? While not germane to NEC interpretation, inspectors are people too, and a personal approach may help the situation.
