Community Solar Disclaimer:

The technological, legal, and regulatory considerations that apply to the interconnection of solar generation and other distributed energy resources are complex and constantly evolving. To the best of Atlantic City Electric's knowledge, the information presented on the Company's Hosting Capacity Map is accurate in all material aspects. However, Atlantic City Electric and their affiliates cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information found on this map, and any such information is subject to immediate change at any time. Please seek appropriate technical, operational, financial, and legal advice before proceeding.

Atlantic City Electric cannot guarantee nor reserve capacity in the queue for community solar projects. If and when the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities ("BPU") approves a community solar project, any such project will need to be studied at that time to determine the feasibility of interconnection. Accordingly, any interconnection study conducted prior to BPU approval of a proposed community solar project shall not serve to reserve or guarantee capacity for the proposed project, and a post-approval interconnection study shall be required for any such project, the costs of which shall be borne by the customer-generator.

By signing this application, the customer-generator acknowledges the foregoing, and further agrees that Atlantic City Electric Company shall not bear any responsibility for the costs of any interconnection study, nor the cost of any upgrades required for any proposed interconnection, and that any such costs shall be borne by the customer-generator.
