Step 2 — Installation and Operation
When you are finished with Step 1 and have a conditionally approved application, your installation may begin. Follow the steps below to begin your installation.
You or your installer should contact:
- Local building and electrical code offices to see if permits are required
- Homeowner associations, if applicable, to determine any community restrictions
Your system will need to be installed to the latest version of the National Electric Code (NEC) and other applicable codes. A certificate of completion is required from code officials before testing or long term operation begins.
Mississippi Power may need to replace the electric meter at your home. This will require a brief service interruption.
Your qualified installer should perform tests to determine if the system is operating correctly according to the Mississippi Public Service Commission’s interconnection rules. Have your installer notify Mississippi Power 48 hours before the day of this testing, as the company is required to observe these tests before authorizing long-term operation. During these tests, Mississippi Power will also verify that the installed equipment conforms to the submitted application.
