    It has taken me quite awhile to realize this, but there is a typo in the title of this forum. ("wirng" should be "wiring")

    I'm looking for a PV installer in Tucson Arizona to help with a DIY system connection to the grid. 
    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried the easy things like the yellow pages for electricians and solar companies. The other thing that I thought Tucson allowed was taking a permit out with the building department as the owner? Might be wrong about that but many do allow this if it is not complicated and all of the equipment is listed. The mounting racks need an engineering stamp and the support structure is properly sized. Along with meeting all local/state codes.

    Someone who takes on a job like this may charge alot of money.
