No; if your application is complete and approved before April 14, 2023, but PG&E has not completed interconnection, you will still be eligible for NEM 2.0. The new tariff requires a completed application, not permission to operate. Please be aware, application processing times can be up to a month and with an increase in customers trying to qualify for NEM 2.0, these processing times should be noted. Please get your application and all applicable documentation in as soon as possible if you would like to be eligible for NEM 2.0.
To qualify for NEM 2.0, you will need to have the following submitted by 11:59 p.m. April 14, 2023.
- Completed application, free of major deficiencies (i.e. no blanks, incomplete/inaccurate document, changes requiring resubmission per Rule 21)
- A single-line diagram
- A signed CLSB Disclosure and Solar Consumer Protection Guide (For residential, non-self-install only)
- A signed Agreement and Authorization Form (For Standard NEM only)
- A final inspection clearance must be submitted before 04/15/23 to retain NEM2 eligibility
NOTE: Your application does not have to be approved by PG&E by this date nor do your panels need to be installed by this date. To ensure your application will be deemed complete, we advise you to submit your application as early as possible.
