Solar power now required for all new homes
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – With the arrival of 2020, solar power will be required with the construction of all new homes in California.
The new mandate could become a major step forward for California’s efforts to achieve 100% clean energy while giving consumers more reliable sources of energy.
The state has just reached 1 million solar roofs and the potential for local solar and storage is reshaping the future of energy.
The new rule was adopted in 2018 by the California Energy Commission.
It applies to all new single-family homes and multi-family complexes up to three stories in height. The size of the solar system installed must be based on the home’s floor area square footage and sized to meet the annual kilowatt-hour energy usage of the home.
