Adding solar to a new home build is smart for a number of reasons. Not only can it help to dramatically lower electricity bills, but it also makes the home more energy independent while helping the environment. Plus, with California's 2020 Solar Mandate, it's required by law.
According to the Title 24 requirements that were updated in 2020, all newly built homes in California are required to have a solar system that is large enough to offset the home's annual electricity needs. Whether you are working on a few custom homes or an entire development, trust our team at Simply Solar to provide the top-quality solar systems you need to comply with California's 2020 Solar Mandate.
Adding a solar system to a new home build can be quite beneficial for the developer and the new homeowner alike. It can increase the market value of the home significantly while providing lower energy costs for the life of the solar system. It also reduces the home’s dependence on the utility grid if solar battery storage is added, and it minimizes the home's carbon footprint by providing renewable, green energy for most of the home’s electrical needs.
As a home builder or contractor, adding solar to new construction homes will require some additional planning and work. Some factors to consider include:
If the home does not have enough south-facing roof space or there is too much shade, the home can be exempted from the Title 24 requirements, or a ground-mounted solar system can be installed.
