The purpose of this workshop is to seek input from experts, stakeholders, and the
general public on the market outlook for the solar photovoltaic and new construction industries.
The workshop will include a discussion of the following topics:
- Market Outlook for PV on New Construction
- Solar Financing Models
- Energy Efficiency
- Outreach and Marketing, Warranties, Consumer Advocacy/Protection
This workshop will solicit and provide information needed to ensure that the program design for the Energy Commission's New Solar Homes Partnership program (NSHP) adequately addresses and reflects current market conditions in the solar photovoltaic and new construction industries. The NSHP is part of a comprehensive statewide solar program known as the California Solar Initiative. The NSHP provides financial incentives to encourage the installation of eligible solar energy systems on new residential construction. The NSHP is focusing efforts on new residential buildings and seeks to achieve 400 megawatts of distributed solar photovoltaic electric capacity by the end of 2016. The NSHP requirements are set forth in the NSHP Guidebook. A copy of this Guidebook is available at http://www.energy.ca.gov/renewables/06-NSHP-1/documents/index.html .
