COURSE DESCRIPTION 1.1
A new requirement in the MA 780 CMR 9th Edition, Chapter 13 code amendments require all commercial new construction subject to that code to be designed and constructed to be “Solar-Ready”. This requirement is to ensure that future building infrastructure can take advantage of a market that is expected to become more conducive to renewable energy. This 1-hour presentation further expands on the requirements with guidance for code officials as to what they should expect to look for in plan reviews and site inspections. Draft checklists for those criteria will also be unveiled and reviewed for additional comments and enhancement, for use by code officials and other construction stakeholders.
