We are here to assist you and reduce your interconnection time.
For any solar solution project, a permit needs to be obtained in order for operation and connection to the utility grid. Before authorization is granted, the application must involve rebate processing, design work, and other procedures.
What is the solar interconnection process?
There are two major steps involved in the interconnection process: applying for interconnection and receiving permission to operate (PTO).
Applying for interconnection
Utility companies need to ensure that your solar energy system meets necessary electrical safety standards. They will also ensure that your solar panel system will meet their respective net metering guidelines.
Once your electric utility grants approval for the installation, you and your installer can proceed with the remainder of the installation process. The final step of solar interconnection; permission to operate, will occur post-installation of your solar equipment.
Permission to operate (PTO)
After your solar panel system is installed on your property and your local government has finished their own inspection process, the final step towards connecting to the grid is receiving permission to operate (PTO).
