sunMAX - Who is the Authority-Having Jurisdiction (AHJ)?


The Authority-Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) defines the regulations and codes for projects that involve any of the following areas:

  • Building
  • Mechanical
  • Structural
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Fire
  • Energy
  • Accessibility
  • and more.

The AHJ typically issues the permit required to install the Photovoltaic (Solar Energy) System. The AHJ is relative to the location where the sunMAX system will be installed.

For example, the AHJ serving customers in San Jose, California is based in the City of San Jose (consult this website). To see other AHJs located in the State of California, consult this website.

To find the particular AHJ that issues permits for your customer, it is suggested that you search on Google in descending order:

  1. State, (ex. "State of California Solar Permits")
  2. County, (ex. "Santa Clara County Solar Permits")
  3. City (ex. "San Jose California Solar Permits")
