The ICC-SRCC OG-100 Solar Thermal Collector Certification Program for solar thermal collectors assesses compliance with the ICC 901/SRCC 100 standard. Published by ICC and ICC-SRCC, the standard sets minimum safety, durability and performance requirements for many types of solar thermal collectors used for fluids like water, glycol and air. Compliance with ICC 901/SRCC 100 is required in most building codes in use throughout North America such as the IBC, IRC, IMC and IPC model codes and the California Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6).
OG-100 certification also requires testing to measure the performance of solar collectors and references the internationally accepted test methods in the ISO 9806 and ISO 9459 standards. By using these internationally recognized test methods, manufacturers can minimize the need to retest to gain certification in different global markets. And many OG-100 certification holders are eligible to obtain the SOLERGY eco-label - without retesting.
OG-100 certification reports display the measured performance using standardized ratings that make it easy to compare collectors on an equal basis. So designers and consumers can make educated choices. And SRCC provides all current OG-100 certificates in our publicly available, searchable online directory.
Incentive programs, building codes and regulations throughout North America recognize OG-100 certifications and performance ratings. OG-100 certification can be used to meet the requirements of many Federal, state, local, and utility and programs that provide rebates and incentives for solar water and air heating products in both the U.S. and Canada.
