Actually, they have a right to operate it unless it causes actual interference. 
 That is all that the letter Is trying to say. Like I said in my previous 
email, your station has the potential to cause interference to nearby 
antenna-connected TV or broadcast reception, but that POTENTIAL does not 
preclude your installing a station and operating it.  If you comply with the 
emissions limits for your station, you can operate unless spurious emissions 
that may be below those limits cause actual interference.  The same principle 
applies here, and that is exactly what the letter says. It does not say that 
solar installations can cause interference, and, in fact, Solar Edge is well 
aware that they cannot have spent tens of thousands of dollars on a number of 
different cases to address it.

"They did advise that a homeowner has the right to install solar on their home 
regardless of potential interference. I advised the agent on the line about the 
amateur license being help by the neighbor, and they again informed me that the 
homeowner wishing to have solar is still allowed to install it on their home."

Install, NOT operate.  There is a difference.  Anyone can have crap put on 
their land.  Nobody may violate federal regulation.

Anything can have the "potential", which does not preclude installation, nor 
the rights to possess.  Regulation, however, prevents operation, once it does.

Don't let the corporate twit con you.

"The only options I have at this time are removing the solar system and 
cancelling your neighbors agreement or reducing his system size. Both of these 
options will come at a cost."

Sucks to be 1:  the neighbor, 2: those responsible for meeting emissions 
requirements, neither of which are your concern.  The extent of response to her 
above words, at most, should be no more than, "Huh...".


P.S.  Spell out "Federal Communications Commission" in your letters, FCC, by 
itself, has little more affect than AM, FM, or XM...  An acronym is a thing, 
the Federal Communications Commission, is a regulatory agency, with whom they 
must comply at all times.
