Solar energy code

This chapter of the state building code, effective Oct. 29, 1977, is twofold:

  • First, this chapter establishes standards for the evaluation of the performance, durability, reliability, and maintainability of solar energy systems;
  • Second, this chapter requires Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) certification, which discloses to each potential buyer about the extent to which the seller's solar energy system meets or exceeds the SRCC Operating Guidelines and Standards found in subpart 4a of this chapter.
