New ICC Publication Includes 2015 I-Code Solar Energy Provisions, SRCC Standards
The collection of requirements is intended to support equipment manufacturers, code officials, first responders, designers, and installers to assure fast, safe, code compliant solar installations
The 2015 International Solar Energy Provisions™ (ISEP™) contains the complete collection of solar energy-related provisions from the 2015 International Codes (I-Codes) and industry standards of the ICC Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (SRCC) in one document. With the growing demand for solar energy projects, the ISEP will greatly benefit the solar energy industry, code officials, first responders, architects, engineers and builders by providing a single, organized source of solar thermal and photovoltaic safety code provisions in one publication available as a hardcopy book and PDF download.
“The 2015 International Solar Energy Provisions is a vital and necessary resource to find the proper code information that relates to solar projects,” said SRCC Executive Director Eileen Prado. “ICC has been addressing solar energy in its model codes for years and this new publication is the perfect tool to quickly reference those codes and the SRCC standards.”
In addition to I-Code provisions, the new publication contains SRCC Standard 100, Minimum Standards for Solar Thermal Collectors; SRCC Standard 300, Minimum Standards for Solar Water Heating Systems; and SRCC Standard 600, Minimum Standards for Solar Thermal Concentrating Collectors. SRCC, the solar industry standard since 1980, is part of the ICC Family of Companies.
Support also is provided by an ICC Solar Water Heating seminar. A Photovoltaic Systems seminar will debut this summer.
Additional resources in the ISEP include sample solar permitting forms and links to the U.S. Department of Energy solar site making the ISEP the single, most comprehensive document for solar energy code compliant construction.
The ISEP is organized to provide the best and most comprehensive tool for the design, installation and administration of both solar thermal heating and cooling, and photovoltaic systems. The commercial and residential provisions are presented in separate sections to make it user friendly and easy to apply.
The 2015 ISEP is available for purchase at early bird prices through March 31 in hardcopy ($29.95 each for ICC Members, $39 each for nonmembers) or PDF download ($27.95 for ICC Members, $36.95 each for nonmembers).
