Or. Admin. R. 860-084-0350 - Requirements after Approval of a Solar Photovoltaic Interconnection

(1) Once a contracted system has been approved under these solar photovoltaic interconnection rules, the electric company may not require a retail electricity consumer to test or perform maintenance on its facility except for:
(a) An annual test in which the contracted system is disconnected from the electric company's equipment to ensure that the inverter stops delivering power to the grid;
(b) Any manufacturer-recommended testing or maintenance;
(c) Any post-installation testing necessary to ensure compliance with IEEE standards or to ensure safety; and
(d) Testing required if the retail electricity customer replaces a major equipment component that is different from the originally installed model.
(2) When a contracted system undergoes maintenance or testing in accordance with the requirements of these solar photovoltaic interconnection rules, the retail electricity consumer must retain written records for seven years documenting the maintenance and the results of testing.
(3) An electric company has the right to inspect a contracted system after interconnection approval is granted, at reasonable hours and with reasonable prior notice to the retail electricity consumer. If the electric company discovers that the contracted system is not in compliance with the requirements of these solar photovoltaic interconnection rules, the electric company may require the retail electricity consumer to disconnect the contracted system until compliance is achieved.
(4) The retail electricity customers' electric service may be disconnected by the public utility entirely if the contracted system must be physically disconnected for any reason.
