N.J. Admin. Code § 14:8-5.8 - Testing, maintenance and inspection after interconnection approval

(a) Once a net metering interconnection has been approved under this subchapter, the EDC shall not require a customer-generator to test or perform maintenance on its facility except for the following:
1. An annual test in which the customer-generator's facility is disconnected from the electric distribution company's equipment to ensure that the facility stops delivering power to the grid;
2. Any manufacturer-recommended testing or maintenance; and
3. Any post-installation testing necessary to ensure compliance with IEEE 1547 or to ensure safety.
(b) When a customer-generator facility approved through a level 2 or level 3 review undergoes maintenance or testing in accordance with the requirements of this subchapter, the customer-generator shall retain written records documenting the maintenance and the results of testing. No recordkeeping is required for maintenance or testing performed on a customer-generator facility approved through a level 1 review.
(c) An EDC shall have the right to inspect a customer-generator's facility after interconnection approval is granted, at reasonable hours and with reasonable prior notice to the customer-generator. If the EDC discovers that the customer-generator's facility is not in compliance with the requirements of this subchapter, and the noncompliance adversely affects the safety or reliability of the electric distribution system, the EDC may require the customer-generator to disconnect the customer-generator facility until compliance is achieved.
