California ready to require 'solar-ready roofs'
California regulators are ready to approve energy standards that would require new homes and commercial buildings to have "solar-ready roofs," among other energy-efficient standards, according to the Mercury News.
The new regulations would not require homeowners to install solar systems, but the roofs of new homes would have to be ready for them.
The new standards also include common-sense measures such as insulating hot-water pipes and ensuring air conditioning systems are inspected for air flow.
