The Interconnection Customer is required to electronically sign the interconnection application PDF in order for the application to be considered complete. Once signed, an email notification is automatically sent to the Utility DER Coordinator notifying them to review the new application.

Important: The Interconnection Customer must use the hyperlink provided in their signature request email. The application PDF signature page cannot be found or accessed by logging into NOVA Power Portal.

NOTE: To resend the application signature request email, click the “Send Application Signature Link” button from the Customer Application Status View.

The hyperlink in the first paragraph will open the application PDF to view and electronically sign. The rest of the email is information for the Interconnection Customer on how to locate interconnection process documents and stay informed of the application’s progress.

Clicking the hyperlink in the email will open the Interconnection Application PDF embedded within a NOVA Power Portal web page.

After an initial type is selected, the remaining input boxes for initials will populate with the selected initial type when the input box is clicked.
