NOTICE: Effective July 1, 2021, the ICC-SRCC OG-300 certification program will formally adopt the 2020 edition of the ICC 900/SRCC 300 standard. After that date, all new OG-300 applications will be required to comply with ICC 900/SRCC 300-2020. Until that date, applicants may choose to use the 2015 or the 2020 version of the standard. Contact us for more information.
The ICC-SRCC OG-300 Solar Water Heating System Certification Program provides proof of compliance for solar water heating systems to the current ICC 901/SRCC 300 standard. This standard is widely referenced by building codes, standards and incentive programs throughout North America. U.S. Federal tax credits, EPA ENERGY STAR® programs, the California Energy Code (Title 24), National Green Building Standard (ICC 700) and many others rely on OG-300 certifications.
OG-300 certification not only ensures that solar water heaters meet minimum requirements for safety and durability, but also provides objective energy ratings customized for nearly 200 locations throughout North America. This allows the performance of different models and types of solar water heaters to be compared directly and consistently. OG-300 performance ratings are used by many incentive programs and tax credits seeking to save energy and cut emissions.
Engineers and designers use OG-300 performance ratings with a variety of modeling tools to integrate solar water heaters into green buildings. For consumers, designers and architects, the ICC-SRCC OG-300 directory is often their first stop to find and compare solar water heaters to meet their project needs.
