    So, I was trying to find out who typically does the commercial and residential electrical plan reviews in a city.

    Figured I would add a poll.

    The inspector checks residential on the fly unless it involves any equipment rated over 400 amps. Commercial will usually get a plan check. It may be only for energy but most commercial projects need a plan check. If a project is checked it will be done by an in-house electrical engineer ......we have a bunch of them and all solar, no matter the size is plan checked by an electrical engineer.

    Washington State....State Dept of Labor and Industries has full jurisdiction over electrical. They however do not perform plan review.
