Required Solar for All New Homes in California

The California Energy Commission approved the 2019 Building Energy Code on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, requiring renewable energy access for all new residential homes in the state starting in 2020.

The code includes incentives for energy storage while mandating that the construction of new homes include advanced energy efficiency measures and rooftop solar.

It is anticipated that the California Building Standards Commission also approve the new standards in the coming weeks, thereby making it law.
