Solar Mandated for All New Homes in California

Effective January 2020, new standards have been adopted into the California Code of Regulation (Title 24, Part 6) that include PV solar installations on all newly constructed buildings and additions and alterations to existing buildings.

Clean Solar is partnering with local, quality driven home construction contractors to provide a reliable streamlined process and expertise in the solar and battery installation process.

Homes built under the new 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards will use about 53% less energy than those built under the previous 2016 standards.  These standards also include battery storage to improve energy savings. The Energy Commission estimates that adding solar to new home construction will add about $40 per month for the average home AND will save consumers $80 per month on heating, cooling and lighting bills.
