Dear stakeholders and project managers,
The Oregon Community Solar Program is working to minimize disruption to our program during the coronavirus outbreak.
We do not anticipate the current situation to broadly impact the timelines of the Oregon Community Solar Program. Oregon Public Utility Commission staff and the program administration team are working remotely on program implementation, and the Program’s call center remains open during its normal hours. All public meetings held by the Commission will be conducted remotely over the phone until further notice.
We do understand, however, that the ongoing situation will impact project development timelines and may affect a range of activities including permitting, construction, and customer outreach and engagement. As we learn more about the duration and severity of the crisis, the program administration team and OPUC staff will work with project managers to understand how projects are impacted and will explore the appropriate steps to ensure the successful rollout of the state’s community solar projects.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the impact of the current situation on the program or on specific projects.
The Oregon Community Solar Program Administration Team
