Application Submission Guide

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

All applications will be completed through the online application portal at solarab.ca. The application can be completed by either the solar PV system owner, lessee, installer, contractor, designer, or designated representative. The application allows for the incentive payment to go directly to the solar PV installer, lessor, lessee or system owner with the completion of the “Assignment of Incentives Form.”

The application is a two-part process. Upon completion of Part I, a conditional approval will be issued by email. This will guarantee distribution of funds if the project is completed per the conditions of Part I approval within the allotted time frame. Once the project has been completed and interconnection approval received, the applicant can complete Part II of the application, which will trigger payment of the incentive.

Both Part I and Part II approvals can be expected within one week of submission unless additional information is required. Payment by direct deposit can be expected to arrive in the identified bank account within 5 to 10 business days of Part II approval.
