I waited until I took delivery of the Mach-E and had a month's worth of increased usage. I assume my installers filled in that form you're talking about; I had to send my installer a copy of the registration and bill of sale. I actually got a call yesterday morning that the additional usage was approved, and they're coming tuesday to start the installGlad to hear you're moving forward with the panels. Did you select someone for your install or trying to get your usage up first?
We had a similar issue with wanting more capacity than our current usage when we installed solar in 2018. We're in Mercer County, PSE&G territory, and there was an alternate usage form the contractor could complete to justify a larger system. The intent is for situations, like yours, where past usage may not be a good estimate of future. Ours was approved without issue and to date we've been overproducing by about 20%. We've got 2 young kids and the MME on the way so we knew our usage was only going up when we moved forward with getting solar installed.
You're not going to regret going solar. I wish we had done it even sooner.
