WEBINAR – Evolution of Solar Thermal Requirements in US Building Codes (1/2019)

This webinar was originally presented in January, 2019, and provides an overview of the codes that impact the solar heating thermal industry across the U.S. It identifies the relevant model codes and where they are adopted. It also notes states where local and amended codes are being used, creating localized requirements. The webinar describes ways key solar industry standards like SRCC Standard 100, 300 and 400 are referenced in the codes. It also shows how many other non-solar standards like NSF 61, NSF 372, UL 1703 and ASCE 7 can apply to solar heating and cooling systems. It ends by showing how certifications and listings are used to show compliance with code requirements.
