[RFI] Leased Solar Panels: Operator Responsibility?

It follows that the operator would be the responsible party, but when 
you consider the fact that the Optimizers get their power from the solar 
panels,  and the only way to shut them off is by physically 
disconnecting them, it would appear the responsibility of that part of 
the system would fall under the control of the company.

My neighbor said the company owns, maintains and operates the system. He 
also said that he is not authorized to operate or make any changes or 
modifications. Of course without seeing the written contract, it's all 
speculation. I'm hoping I can convince my neighbor to let me have a copy.
