How to Apply For Your Home
Installing Your Own Solar PV Panels
Optional: Contact OUC’s Customer Service at 407-423-9018 to request an energy survey. OUC recommends an energy survey be conducted to ensure your home is operating efficiently prior to the installation of a solar system.
Solicit quotes and select a contractor to install the solar system. OUC recommends getting at least three quotes. For assistance finding a solar contractor, consider visiting OUC Preferred Contractors. Use of an OUC Preferred Contractor is not required.
Pull or have contractor pull required permits and install the solar system*.
After permit inspection is complete, have your contractor submit a solar interconnection application through our online rebate portal.
Required documentation includes:
Contractors: OUC has enhanced the Solar Interconnection Application process with a new online portal. All interconnection applications and supporting documentation must be submitted via the portal, as OUC will no longer accept emailed applications. For registration instructions, click here. Once registered, contractors will be able to submit their customers’ interconnection applications via the portal, as well as track application status.
- Proof of permit approval (i.e. Certificate of Occupancy).
- Proof of purchase of the solar system (must be itemized and signed by the customer).
- An electrical one-line diagram. If the PV system is certified by a professional engineer then the one-line diagram must be sealed and signed by a licensed professional engineer (click here to view an example of an acceptable one-line diagram).
OUC reviews the application and exchanges the existing electric meter for a bi-directional meter.
