Application process for rooftop solar and other smaller systems

Before you install your system, review this checklist.

Steps and application

  1. Obtain quotes and choose a reputable installer.
  2. Submit an online application with the proposed system, including a picture of the meter.
  3. Wait for review and confirmation authorizing the interconnection.
  4. Get permits and install your system, but don’t turn it on yet.
  5. Have your system inspected, take a picture and let us know. Upload the inspection and a picture of the safety signs, then sign the electronic signature request.
  6. Give us 7-10 business days to install the meter. We’ll let you know when you can turn your system on.
  7. Generate your own renewable energy!
