ACEC will review your application packet.
If your application is incomplete, you will need to resubmit it with the needed corrections.
ACEC Engineering Review
After receiving a completed application packet, ACEC will determine if all Renewable Generation Guidelines are met. If all guidelines are met, installation can proceed. If guidelines are not met, ACEC will contact the renewable generation installer for further details.
