Proposed change to SRCC Standards is Good News for Sun Bandit

Sun Bandit is changing the solar hot water heating industry. Installers, distributors, contractors and homeowners all across the country have taken notice of this revolutionary technology and so have the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC). The SRCC is reviewing their standards requirements to potentially include Sun Bandit, a revolutionary solar hot water heating systems that use photovoltaic panels.

What is the SRCC?

The SRCC is a non-profit organization that provides authoritative ratings, certifications and standards for solar thermal products. The intent of this third-party organization is to provide guidance to incentive providers by assigning a specific set of standards to best-in-class solar hot water systems. These SRCC ratings are a baseline to determine which systems are eligible for incentives and rebates.

The SRCC is in the process of updating these standards to include our solar hot water heating system, Sun Bandit, which gains its energy through the use of PV panels rather than traditional solar thermal collectors. If passed, this inclusive policy change will allow Sun Bandit Solar Hybrid Energy Systems to meet the requirements of the new SRCC Standard 300, thus obtaining the industry recognition that this revolutionary technology deserves and making it qualified for incentives and rebates.

Key Additions to SRCC Standard 300

The key change to the SRCC Standard 300 policy has to do with including PV technology, which until now has been excluded from the requirement standards. Some of these changes include adding PV-based terms to the reference terms and ensuring that PV systems and water heaters meet the necessary safety requirements.

What does this mean for Sun Bandit?

Passing this updated version of the SRCC Standard 300 policy will mean great things for Sun Bandit. Meeting these requirements and receiving validation from the SRCC will give authority to what we have known all along; Sun Bandit is the most revolutionary, efficient and affordable way to heat your water.

The addition of PV-based solar hot water systems to the new SRCC Standard 300 ratings signifies that Sun Bandit is having such a significant impact on the solar hot water industry, that an updated set of standards is necessary. These new standards show that Sun Bandit is a viable and reasonable alternative to traditional solar thermal hot water. Sun Bandit is truly changing the way we heat water.

Once approved, Sun Bandit will easily meet the requirements for many state and local incentive and rebate programs, making the process simple and hassle-free. Sun Bandit is the most affordable way to go solar, but these incentives and rebates will provide even more savings. There truly is no reason not to purchase a Sun Bandit. With great access to clean, green, affordable energy, we are getting one step closer to a more sustainable world.
