Requirements for Solar Providers

Requirements for Solar Providers

 

The following requirements will be in force with regard to any future installations made at cooperative member premises effective August 1, 2019:

 

  • As part of the site-plan diagram, the location of a ground-mount solar system must be clearly marked on the member’s property.  This action would ensure that when the Blue Ridge representative makes a visit to the site, there would be no question about the exact position of the planned solar array.
     
  • Effective immediately, the cooperative will no longer approve any lineside taps.  Should such a configuration be encountered, the solar-system application would not be approved, nor would the interconnection process be completed.
     
  • Any plan to install solar equipment upon a power-line right-of-way easement assigned to the cooperative would be prohibited.  Neither project approval nor the interconnection process would go forward until the proposed site of the equipment could be relocated.  The relocation site would need to be situated on ground that rests totally beyond the boundaries of any said right-of-way strip.
