FYI, I am in eastern Los Angeles County un-incorporated and the county inspector instisted on both a DC and AC disconnect, and no the AC breakers did not count.

un-incorporated LA county here, and no DC disconnect required, the Xantrex GT's built-in switch qualified for me. Edison required an AC disconnect so they would not have to scan all my breakers.

If you are interested in monitoring your system on your own, I'd suggest Xantrex, because their protocol is open, and several people have written software to talk with the inverter. If you pick an inverter brand with a closed protocol, it will be an uphill battle trying to talk to it without buying their proprietary hardware and/or software.

Xantrex I believe opened up that as well ( XW Canbus register maps ) , I had no interest in making a SG-View type application as one has to spend 100+ bucks just for the Canbus to USB converter.
