OPUC Staff is requesting, by October 13, 2020, stakeholder feedback on proposed revisions to the Community Solar Program (CSP) Program Implementation Manual (PIM).
The PIM is an outward-facing document that explains program participation requirements for Project Managers and Participants. The PIM is necessarily subject to revisions over time as new issues arise and are resolved throughout program implementation. The PIM was last updated on December 23, 2019. The Program Administration Team is now recommending another PIM update to memorialize decisions made during the past nine months of program implementation, as well as to correct and clarify existing language in the PIM. The program is seeking public comment on the proposed PIM revisions. For your review, the proposed revisions appear as redlines in the version of the PIM linked below. The revisions are summarized on page 2 of the document:
