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.
