"Solar Ready" Ordinances
The City Of Chula Vista encourages the use of renewable energy and energy efficient building systems. To promote this technology, we are amending our Municipal Code to facilitate their use. These ordinances will prepare each new home for future Photovoltaic electrical generation and Solar Energy for water heating. These ordinances require the installation of electrical conduit and plumbing pipe for these uses during building construction. The future occupant can then install these systems at less cost and with no effect to the finishes or aesthetics to the building.
These ordinances and installation guidelines will be part of the Plan Check corrections and go into effect February 19th 2009.
