This System Verification Form is required after the proposed onsite Distributed Energy Resource (DER) is installed and after successful completion of a state or city electrical inspection. Idaho Power prefers that this form be completed by a licensed electrician, solar installer, NABCEP certified individual or an engineer or other qualified persons as accepted by Idaho Power. In lieu of professional certification, documentation may be required including cut sheets and/or invoices for installed components. If invoices are provided, financial information is not required and can be excluded if desired. Once submitted, an electronic printable version of this form will be emailed.
Upon receipt, Idaho Power will conduct a site visit within 10 business days for projects up to 100 kW and within 20 business days for projects over 100 kW to check for compliance with Schedule 68 Interconnection to Customer Distributed Energy Resources, and change the meter. It is not necessary to be present for this visit.
The first Idaho Power inspection is conducted at no charge. A return trip charge of $61 may be billed to the customer each time Idaho Power personnel are dispatched to the job site but are unable to conduct the on-site inspection due to one or more of the conditions not being met that had been certified as complete by the customer or installer on this form.
Exporting system maximum size: 25 kW AC for Residential and Small General Service; 100 kW AC for Large Commercial, Industrial and Irrigation. AC-coupled energy storage systems count toward total system size.
Non-Exporting system maximum size: 25 kW AC for Residential and Small General Service; no limit for Large Commercial, Industrial and Irrigation. Energy storage systems do not count toward total system size.
Projects are reviewed based on the proposed total AC nameplate capacity as defined in Schedule 68 and AC unity power factor (1 kilovolt-ampere (kVA) = 1 kilowatt (kW)).
Inverter(s) must be smart inverters as defined in Schedule 68.
