I live in Garden Grove and I am currently installing solar at my house. I would like to do my best to ensure that the inspection is only done once. I am looking for someone with knowledge on solar installs and codes for Garden Grove to come and look at the work I have done (when finished) and see if I am missing anything.

A good example would be if the city still requires a separate earth ground installed even though my micro-inverters are self grounding and meet the requirements listed in NEC 690.35.

Another question would be can I install a full rack but only use half of the rack or will they require that I cut the rack. I would like to leave the rack to add panels in the future.

I am installing 10 monocrystalline solar panels (from Renogy) with Enphase M215 micro-inverters (IG).
I also purchased a monitoring system for production and consumption (also from Enphase).

I have to take time off of work for the inspection and that is not free. I was hoping to pay someone to help me out on a weekend.

Can you get an install diagram from the mfg.?
They should have varying configurations , for
Various needs. If they do, show it to the city inspector just before they leave for day at their office. And get his input. The diagrams are pretty bull it proof. And very acceptable.
