On February 19, 2019 the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (“BPU”) formally adopted its proposed regulations (the “Regulations”) regarding the Community Solar Pilot Program (the “Pilot Program”). Although there are some minor clarifications, and 339 published comments, there are no material changes to the proposed regulations that were published for comment on October 1, 2018.
The first year of the Pilot Program began upon adoption of the Regulations on February 19, 2019, and will end on December 31, 2019. The remaining two years of the Pilot Program will be calendar years 2020 and 2021.
The next step for the BPU will be to adopt the proposed regulations regarding the form of application which were published on November 28, 2018, and to begin accepting applications.
