Errors in Filling Out Community Solar Disclosure Forms

< Back to Vendor Updates

The Program Administrator continues review of completed Disclosure Forms and has noticed several concerning patterns of fields being completed incorrectly or incompletely. The Disclosure Form is designed to provide customers with clear information about their solar project including its costs, and the result of these errors is that customers are provided incorrect or inadequate information. When the Program Administrator finds Disclosure Forms with errors, it may require the Approved Vendor or Designee to have the customer re-sign a corrected Disclosure Form, and patterns of erroneous Disclosure Forms may lead to pre-disciplinary and disciplinary action. These measures can ultimately impact the approval of project applications, resulting in delays for customers and Approved Vendors.

The Program has created this linked resource to highlight several specific examples of errors that the Program Administrator commonly sees on Community Solar Disclosure Forms. In January 2024, a similar resource was published regarding Distributed Generation Disclosure Form entry errors. In addition to the examples in these documents, please ensure that Disclosure Forms do not have typographical errors, such as accidentally entering the same number or text into multiple fields. Misplacing text or other values can create cascading errors where one incorrect entry throws off remaining fields. It is also important to make sure that blocks of pasted text are not cut off.

Please ensure that your Disclosure Forms are filled out correctly and do not contain these or other errors. For assistance, please contact the Program Administrator.
