Reminder to Register Designees/Nested Designees

< Back to Updates

The Program’s Consumer Protection team has seen an increase in the number of unregistered entities conducting marketing, sales, and other work on behalf of registered AVs and Designees. Every third-party entity that has direct interaction with end-use customers is required to register as a Designee. This includes solar installers, marketing firms, lead generators, and sales organizations. As a reminder, AVs must ensure that both their Designees and Designees of their Designees (“Nested Designees”) register with the Program, prior to working with any AV or Designee. Designees/Nested Designees must clarify in their registration under which AV and Designee they are registering. AVs and Designees who fail to ensure Designees and Nested Designees are registered in a timely manner may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including suspension from the Program.
