solarThe International Code Council (ICC) and the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC) have completed updated editions of ICC 901/SRCC 100, ICC 900/SRCC 300 and ICC 902/PHTC 902/SRCC 400 standards for solar thermal collectors, solar water heating systems and solar pool heating systems.

The updated standards received ANSI approval on Dec. 3, 2020, and the ICC/SRCC solar thermal standards are referenced in a wide range of model codes and serve as the basis for the SRCC’s OG-100, OG-300 and OG-400 certification programs.

Topics receiving additional focus in the new update include: photovoltaic-thermal hybrid collectors (PVTs), concentrating collectors, photovoltaic water heaters and fire safety.

Pre-publication versions of the updated standards can now be viewed on the ICC Online Digital Codes website.
