The Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code) have solar photovoltaic (PV) system and solar ready requirements.

The solar PV system requirements apply to newly constructed low-rise residential buildings.

The solar-ready requirements are mandatory measures and applicable to buildings which do not have a solar PV system installed. When a building is built to be solar ready, applicable Energy Code requirements prepare the building for future installation of a solar energy system.
