If you were in Florida this is where you would start. Maybe they have a similar program in Pa.
These guys might even have some guidance for you

Check out anything from Sandia National Laboritories. They have a "Handbooks of Recommended Design Practices" and reprints of many well written articles. John Wiles seems to be on a crusade to bring code compliance to the PV world of backyard do-it-yourselfers. If you get the chance take a class from him.
