Equipment

Effective May 16, 2017, the process and forms to submit requests to add new equipment to the Energy Commission's Lists of Eligible Equipment changed. All requests must be submitted directly to the Energy Commission at SolarEquipment@energy.ca.gov and must use the new forms available on this website. These new forms and a description of the process for submitting requests on the Go Solar California website are available by selecting the specific PV technology (PV Modules, Other Solar Electric Generating Technologies, Inverters, Meters) listed on this page below.

Please note that the Energy Commission will post a June 1, 2017 update to all Lists of Eligible Equipment but will not post a July 2017 update. Monthly updates will resume in August 2017.

All inquiries regarding the Energy Commission's Lists of Eligible Equipment must be submitted directly to the Energy Commission at SolarEquipment@energy.ca.gov.


Lists of Eligible Equipment

All solar energy systems receiving ratepayer-based incentives in California must utilize equipment listed on these pages and maintained by the Energy Commission. With the enactment of Senate Bill 1 (Murray) in 2006, the Energy Commission was directed to establish eligibility criteria, conditions for incentives, and rating standards for projects applying for ratepayer-funded incentives for solar energy systems. The Eligible Equipment Lists cover PV modules, inverters (including smart inverters beginning in September 2017), meters and related equipment. Please note that equipment on the Energy Commission's lists have undergone tests to achieve minimal safety and performance standards. The Energy Commission and the State of California make no claim or warranty on the equipment and its safety, performance or durability. Anyone considering installing solar energy systems are encouraged to conduct their own research (due diligence).

General Procedures for Submitting Equipment Listing Requests, this document provides general guidance on what is required and how to submit equipment listing requests. For more detail, please reference the specific equipment webpages listed below.
