  • California first US state to require solar on new homes

The recent decision by the California Energy Commission to mandate solar on all new residential buildings starting from 2020 has had a noticeable impact on GTM Research's solar forecast for the Golden State, bumping it up by 14% over 4 years, or around 650 megawatts (MW).

The requirement would apply only to newly constructed homes, although many homeowners are choosing to install rooftop solar panels with the help of rebate programs.

The new mandate, put forth by the California Energy Commission, requires new homes built after January 1, 2020, to include solar systems. California also has the goal to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent from 1990 levels by 2030.

Clean energy projects in the country are set to gain in terms of cost savings on land acquisition and evacuation infrastructure under the National Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy.

Southern California Edison (SCE) supports the California Energy Commission's adoption of the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards ("Title 24"). "ICRA believes that the hybrid projects are likely to be competitive in tariffs w.r.t to individual wind or solar energy projects, given the benefits associated with hybrid projects (mainly in respect of lower capital cost, optimization of transmission infrastructure & higher generation expected)". Vivek Sharma, Senior Director, Crisil Infrastructure Advisory, said: "The Central Electricity Authority and the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission will have to come out with norms that can allow the sale of hybridised power generated from existing projects".

"We are the first, we will not be the last", commissioner David Hochschild said after the new mandate was adopted.

Representatives of the construction, utility and solar industries all helped develop the new standard, and no industry groups spoke in opposition Wednesday.

"Farmers are dealing with and living in nature regularly, and so they are thinking long-term money wise, but they are also thinking long-term for the environment its kind of a ideal balance for farmers to think solar", Beck said. More than 5 million homes in the state use solar power, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
