The Program Administrator has been developing an API (Application Program Interface) upload feature for disclosure forms (community solar, DG purchase, DG PPA, DG lease, and DG over 25kW) that is now ready for testing. Any Approved Vendor or designee that’s interested may participate in a beta test of this feature on the Program Administrator’s development server. Please note that this requires programming resources on the Approved Vendor’s/designee’s side. Any Approved Vendor or designee that’s interested in participating in this beta testing should request access by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, and more information on how to gain access will be provided.
A further announcement will be made when the disclosure form API feature is added to the live ABP portal. Beta test participants will not obtain any advance access to these features on the live site.
A new FAQ regarding submitting the Part II application in time to qualify for withholding of collateral has been posted here.
An FAQ for REC contract assignments and accompanying Acknowledgement documents have been posted here.
The Program Administrator has developed three new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The new FAQs and associated answers can be found here and address (i) REC payment schedules; (ii) clarification of how the utility interconnection queues and ABP waitlist interact; and (iii) explanation on language that is permitted for marketing materials. The new FAQs are listed below with their corresponding section headings within the broader FAQ webpage.
When will payment be issued for my RECs?
Does my project have to stay in the utility interconnection queue to remain on the ABP waitlist?
Can I tell customers that solar will eliminate their utility bill?
