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.
