Note: Tracking Number – This number is for reference purposes only. Your project is
still under review. Shortly after hitting the submit button, you will receive a
confirmation email from PSE&G. This email will provide details regarding the program
application fee and the interconnection application fee. You are required to submit
both fees before your application can be considered further. While applicants can
provide a single check for the Solar Loan Program application fee, applicants must
provide separate interconnection checks for each host project to be mailed to the
address noted within the payment instructions. PSE&G will be unable to process your
application without receiving both of the fees by the date stated in the email. You will
also receive further communications from PSE&G as your project is processed by the
Solar Loan Program team. Thank you for participating.
