I feel like I'm equipped to help answer as I'm in South Corona.

My installer and I expect the permit to finally be issued sometime this coming week.

My main panel upgrade is scheduled for 5/14/18.

We submitted our original plans 3/30/18, we had one round of corrections which delayed things.

I'm getting 10.89kW of solar installed along with 2 powerwalls.

Wow thats an awesome system, I am getting a 2.9 kw system with one Powerwall.

Luckily I didn't need a panel upgrade. Waiting on permit, and hopefully installation, sometime this month.

Did you need a referral code by any chance?

In my area, it takes 2 weeks per application. It took me 2 months for other reasons, but it was 2 weeks each time through the pipe. It really depends on your jurisdiction/city.

It really helps if you know where your building-permit office is, and you can send emails/phone in to ask questions independently of your installer. Only you will have total focus and time for your project.

PTO takes about 1 day via SCE, but ONLY from the time when your installer submits the final paperwork via PowerClerk. Mine took 2 weeks because it took my installer a while to sort finishing inspections and then actually getting around to submitting the final inspection paperwork.

The electricians are currently onsite to do a main panel upgrade, I hear them cutting through the stucco right now :p
