The Program Administrator is announcing an update to the protocol for requesting an extension for a system that is nearing its Scheduled Energization Deadline.
Moving forward, all extension requests made under REC contract clause Section 5(b)(v) should be rounded to the last business day of the month.
For example, if a system’s Scheduled Energized Date is August 19, 2020, and the Approved Vendor requests a 12 month extension under Section 5(b)(v), the new Scheduled Energized Date will be August 31, 2021, instead of August 19, 2021. Please ensure this is captured in all extension requests sought under Section 5(b)(v).
This change in protocol only effects extension requests made under Section 5(b)(v) of the REC contract. The protocol for all extensions made under other Section 5(b) clauses remain as stated in the REC contract.
More details on the extension request protocol can be found in the relevant Program FAQ here.
