The California Energy Commission (CEC) continues to drive advancements in clean energy with updates to Title 24, anticipating an annual addition of 280 MW solar and 400 MWh storage capacity, enhancing the state’s electric grid resilience.1 Stem’s Title 24 Calculator remains a valuable tool for California solar EPCs and project developers to navigate these changes effectively.
Current partners can enroll in our Title 24 course at Stem University to learn about the latest solar and storage requirements for new construction in California. The course also features a demo of the Title 24 Calculator in action, identifying not only the minimum requirements but also the “sweet spot” of project size for maximizing value.
How Stem’s Title 24 Calculator Works
Stem’s Title 24 Calculator requires three inputs: building type, square footage, and zip code. Beyond basic compliance, the calculator factors in Climate Zone, solar PV capacity, minimum solar and battery capacity, and rated power requirements based on the latest standards.2
