The ICC-SRCC OG-100 Solar Thermal Collector Certification Program provides certification of compliance for solar thermal collectors to the current ICC 901/SRCC 100 Solar Thermal Collector standard. 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 the ICC 901/SRCC 100 standard is required in most building codes in use throughout North America including the IBC, IRC, IMC and IPC model codes.
ICC 901/SRCC 100 also requires testing to quantify the performance of solar collectors and references the internationally-accepted test methods in the ISO 9806 standard. OG-100 certifications report the measured performance using standardized performance ratings to make it easy to compare collectors on an equal basis. Current OG-100 certificates can be found in our searchable online directory. While most share the same format and information, solar pool heating collectors are addressed in a specialized format for this unique application (click here for more information).
Incentive programs, codes and regulations throughout North America recognize OG-100 certification 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.
