New California Consumer Protection Rules Posted on Jul 16, 2019
Today, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued its California Solar Consumer Protection Guide – a must read for anyone considering installing solar.
On August 30, 2019, the guide will also be available in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. It will also be released in audio format.
Beginning September 30, 2019, solar providers in the service areas of Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric are required to collect customer initials and a signature on the guide.
Solar providers submitting applications to interconnect residential solar customers in the service areas of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) are required to collect customer initials on the first four pages and a signature on the last page of the Guide starting on September 30, 2019. The signed pages must be included, along with the final contract and any required CSLB disclosure forms, with the interconnection application. Additionally, the CPUC requires that the customer be given sufficient time to read the Guide.
