California to require solar panels on all new homes

California to require solar panels on all new homesCalifornia became the first state to require all new homes to be built with solar panels Wednesday after a vote by the state's energy commission.

The California Energy Commission voted unanimously, 5-0, to add the requirement to the state's building code. It goes into effect Jan. 1, 2020, and includes all condominiums and apartment buildings up to three stories high.

"This will be nothing short of historic for our state and for our country," said Bernadette Del Chiaro, executive director of the California Solar & Storage Association, an industry group. "California is once again betting on the sun and putting real policy behind grand vision."

Some buildings will be eligible for exemptions from the requirement, including those shaded by trees or with roofs too small to accommodate a solar photovoltaic system.
