shall provide to the applicable owner a notice to that effect, in a form 
established by the Commission and including all information 
required by the Commission.
(2)  If an owner, on receipt of a notice under subsection (1), is of the 
opinion that the micro-generator's micro-generation generating unit 
will no longer qualify as a micro-generation generating unit after a

micro-generator and on notice to the micro-generator, file with the 
Commission a notice of dispute in a form established by the 
Commission and including all information required by the 
Commission.

subsection (2), must, within 30 days or such longer period as the 
Commission, on notice to the owner and the micro-generator,

micro-generation generating unit continues to be a micro-
generation generating unit after the change to its nameplate 
capacity, and
	(b)	communicate its decision to the owner and the micro-
generator.
(4)  The decision of the Commission under subsection (3) is final 
and is not subject to appeal.

interconnected electric system and, in the opinion of the owner, 
concurred in by the Commission on application by the owner, the 
costs of maintaining the connection of the micro-generation 
generating unit to the interconnected electric system are
