The Program Administrator has released a new feature to facilitate e-signatures on Community Solar Disclosure Forms generated through the ABP Portal for situations where one potential nonresidential subscriber has multiple accounts each requiring a separate disclosure form. The feature is only for nonresidential customers and it will allow Approved Vendors and Designees to bundle Community Solar disclosure forms together and need only a single e-signature. To use this option the signer of the disclosure form must be a person or a representative of the entity that is the end user of the underlying utility account(s). Intermediaries such as energy management entities or account management entities may not sign disclosure forms on behalf of a potential subscriber.
Typically, potential subscribers would receive an individual email for each disclosure form. Signature bundling allows the potential subscriber to sign once for multiple disclosure forms even if the forms are for more than one Community Solar project so long as the disclosure form was created by the same Approved Vendor or Designee. The disclosure forms will be bundled in the portal by the Approved Vendor or Designee before the forms are sent to be signed.
By using this feature the potential subscriber will receive one email with a table summary of all disclosure forms bundled together for signature. Potential subscribers will still have the option to view each full disclosure form before signing.
Approved Vendors and Disclosure Form Designees can access this feature in the Vendors tab of the ABP portal through the Community Solar Disclosure Form Dashboard. Signature bundling will only be available as an option when there are two or more disclosure forms in ‘Submitted’ status and those forms have the same potential subscriber’s email address.
If you have any questions regarding this new portal feature, please reach out to the Program Administrator at [email protected] or at 877-783-1820.
