The ICC-SRCC OG-100 Solar Thermal Collector Certification Program provides certification for solar thermal collectors to the current ICC 901/SRCC 100 Solar Thermal Collector standard. The standard references the internationally-accepted test methods in the ISO 9806 standard. OG-100 addresses a wide range of collector types, including glazed and unglazed flat plate, evacuated tube, integrated collector storage, roof-integrated, concentrating, transpired, PV-thermal and even photovoltaic water heating collectors. OG-100 certification ensures that collectors meet minimum safety and durability criteria. It also provides standardized performance ratings for different climate types and applications. ICC-SRCC OG-100 ratings make it easy to compare collectors from various manufacturers on an equal basis. For consumers, designers and architects, the ICC-SRCC OG-100 directory is often their first stop to find and compare solar thermal collectors.
Incentive programs and regulations throughout North America recognize OG-100 certification. Check the DSIRE website for listings of solar water and pool heating programs that reference ICC-SRCC's OG-100 certification.
