Once your application is accepted, your contractor can move forward with installing your system.
3. INSPECT YOUR SYSTEM
Submit your electrical contractor’s Authorization & Declaration of Compliance or Certificate of Electrical Inspection from a BC Safety Authority Officer.
4. CONNECT TO THE GRID
We’ll authorize your connection to the grid.
This is usually two weeks after receiving the electrical inspection.
