The California Building Standards Commission has voted unanimously to implement the most stringent green building codes in the U.S. The Code, dubbed Calgreen, will take effect in January of 2011.  Solar water heating will play a part in Calgreen as it specifies that “Solar water heating may be used to assist in meeting the energy efficiency requirements” of the code.

SunWater Solar is pleased to see that Solar water heating is recognized as a key part in continuing California’s push toward a greener future.
