For Solar Contractors

Important!

Only PUD-Registered Solar Installers may offer the Solar Express Program Incentives to their customers. However, anyone assisting a customer with a PV installation will need to follow PUD guidelines for interconnection and net metering. Technical assistance can be found on this page.

To become a PUD-Registered Solar Installer, contractors must:

  • Attend a PUD Solar Installer Orientation
  • Submit a Solar Installer Application
  • Sign a Solar Installer Agreement

The requirements are detailed in our Solar Installer Guidelines. All of these documents can be found below. Please contact us directly if you would like to be notified when the next Solar Installer Orientation is scheduled.

Solar Meter Diagrams

Meter Diagram image (click to view)A one-line diagram should include all specified electrical design information about a proposed system, including solar modules, inverters, interconnection point, disconnect switches and meters. If batteries, subpanels, and/or other generators are part of the design, these must be noted. In order to correctly meter solar production, the metering configuration should match one of the diagrams found by clicking here.
