California Regulators Give Go-ahead for Solar Panels on New Homes

Going solar

With this move California has positioned itself as the pioneer of clean energy in the country, encouraging more electric vehicles on the roads and reduced emissions from commercial and residential establishments.

California's move to require new homes in the state to have solar panels from 2020 will have a positive net impact on residential solar installations of almost 650 MW from 2020 through 2023. "Now, California is taking bold leadership again, recognizing that solar should be as commonplace as the front door that welcomes you home".

The renewable energy industry employs 10.3 million people worldwide, according to new data from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). GTM also note that their forecasts are a baseline and that there is greater potential available, but it will depend on what size solar addition becomes the norm for new construction and the segment of new houses that are eligible for exemption - those that may simply be incompatible or built in the shade of buildings or trees. Persuaded by these claims, the California construction industry is actually backing the new mandate. The price of solar has dropped dramatically in recent years.

These kinds of advances and their embrace by state and local elected officials as well as many businesses is why- despite the Trump Administration's abandonment of leadership on climate change-the United States will still in all likelihood meet its Paris commitments.

Senior Vice-President at ICRA, Sabyasachi Majumdar, said, "Hybrid projects are likely to be competitive in tariffs compared to individual wind or solar energy projects, given the benefits associated with hybrid projects - mainly in respect of lower capital cost, optimisation of transmission infrastructure and higher generation expected".

"We are the first, we will not be the last", commissioner David Hochschild said after the new mandate was adopted.

California keeps showing the rest of us the way.
