California’s Title 24 Solar New Build Home Standard
Approved first by California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Green Building Standards Code with final approval from the CEC, the new, Title 24 rules require single-family homes and multi-family buildings as high as three stories be solar-ready or come equipped with solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
New rooftop solar PV systems are expected to reduce home energy usage by more than 50% as compared to today’s standards, which were enacted in 2006, and help California realize its goal of 80% net zero-carbon energy by 2050, according to the CEC.
Furthermore, solar energy systems installers can earn a Title 24 solar compliance credit for the installations they complete that enhance the market value of homes, as well as others. Zero Down Solar can help! See our solar reviews here.
