Title 24 is a statewide energy efficiency standard set by the California Energy Commission (CEC) designed to reduce energy consumption in new and existing buildings. This standard applies to all new construction, remodels, and additions to existing buildings. It is important to note that Title 24 is not a building code; instead, it is a set of requirements for energy efficiency that must be met by all structures in the state of California.
Title 24 solar planning and installation is one of the key components of this important energy efficiency standard. The goal of Title 24 is to reduce the amount of energy used to power a building. This is done by requiring the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in new and existing buildings. Solar PV systems are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to reduce energy use and generate clean energy.
When planning and installing a solar PV system, there are several factors to consider. First, the system size must be determined based on the amount of energy needed to power the building. The system size determines the number of solar panels that will need to be purchased and installed, as well as the type of mounting system and other related equipment. The system should also be designed to meet the specific requirements outlined in Title 24.
Once the system size has been determined and the components have been selected, the next step is to install the system. This process can be quite complicated, as it involves connecting the solar panels to the building’s electrical system and ensuring that the system meets all safety and performance requirements. It is important to hire a professional solar installer to ensure that the system is installed correctly and that all components are working properly.
Once the system is installed, it must be inspected and certified by the CEC to ensure that it meets Title 24 requirements. The inspector will check the system to make sure it has been installed correctly, and that all components are functioning properly. If the system fails the inspection, it must be corrected before it can be certified. At ACR Solar, we can help you follow the state-mandated energy standards for your solar project.

Propylene glycol is the most common heat transfer fluid in the freeze protected closed loop solar water heating systems used in this area. These fluids degrade overtime and, just like with your car, should be checked and changed every 5 years to properly maintain your system. These systems are pressurized, so it is advised for homeowners to have a licensed expert perform maintenance. ACR Solar can professionally maintain your home’s solar water heating system.
