Notice of Availability
New Solar Homes Partnership Guidebook
[CEC-300-2006-017-CMF/Docket No. 06-NSHP-1]

The New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP) is part of a comprehensive statewide solar program known as the California Solar Initiative (CSI). The NSHP will implement the Energy Commission's portion of the CSI and provides financial incentives to encourage the installation of eligible solar energy systems on new residential construction. The Energy Commission will work with builders and developers to incorporate high levels of energy efficiency and high-performing solar systems to help create a self-sustaining solar market where home buyers demand energy efficient, solar homes. The NSHP seeks to achieve 400 megawatts of installed solar electric capacity in California by the end of 2016.

This Guidebook, adopted by the Energy Commission in its regularly scheduled Business Meeting of December 13, 2006, describes the requirements to receive incentives under the NSHP.
