16 May, 2018, 07:53 | Author: Kim Reid
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.

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.
