CERTIFICATION & LISTING PROGRAMS - SRCC OG-100 PROGRAM
Solar Thermal Collectors
The SRCC OG-100 Solar Thermal Collector Certification Program provides certification of solar thermal collectors to the current ICC 901/SRCC 100 Solar Thermal Collector standard, which references the internationally-accepted test methods in the ISO 9806 standard. The requirements of the OG-100 program are documented in the OG-100 Operating Guidelines for Certifying Solar Collectors document, which is available on the Guidelines and Policies webpage. The SRCC program includes a wider range of collector types, including: glazed and unglazed flat plate, evacuated tube, integrated collector storage, roof-integrated, concentrating, transpired and even photovoltaic water heating collectors.
The OG-100 program ensures that these collectors meet minimum safety and durability criteria, and provide standardized performance ratings for different climates and applications. The SRCC OG-100 ratings allow the performance of collectors from various manufacturers to be compared on an equal basis. SRCC certificates provide the key information consumers and system designers need to compare, model and select the right collectors for their system. OG-100 certified collectors are required for all OG-300 certified systems.
Dozens of incentive programs and regulations nationwide recognize and require SRCC OG-100 certification. Check the DSIRE website for listings of solar water heating and solar pool heating programs that reference SRCC's OG-100 certification.
