The Go Solar, California! Community Solar Calendar


CSI-Thermal Contractor/Self-Installer Training

 The CSI-Thermal Program Contractor/Self-installer Training is mandatory for contractors and self-installers to participate in the California Solar Incentive-Thermal program. An overview of current solar water heating technologies will be included, but this workshop is not intended as a 'how-to' instructional course on installing solar water heating systems. The workshop will explain the program, the participation requirements and the application process.
 Pre-registration is required to ensure a seat. We cannot accommodate walk-ins. Registration requests submitted less than 24 hours before a workshop session will not be accepted.  To register send an email to with the following information:
 ·    Your direct contact information
 ·    Indicate if you are a self-installer or professional contractor
 ·    Installation contractors must provide a California contractor's license number and must have an active A, B, C-4, C-36 or C-46 license
 ·    Your preferred workshop date To be eligible for a CSI-Thermal Program rebate, a qualifying SWH system must be installed in one of the two following ways:

1. By an eligible contractor:

·    To be eligible, a contractor must be licensed by the State of California Contractors State License Board (CSLB), have  an active A (Engineer), B (General), C-4 (Boiler, Hot Water Heating and Steam Fitting), C-36 (Plumbing) or C-46 (Solar) contractors’ license and be in accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the CSLB.

·    Contractors must also attend a CSI-Thermal contractor/installer training workshop presented by one of the four Program Administrators in the state to be certified in the program.

·    Each contractor who meets these requirements is included in the CSI-Thermal Program’s list of eligible contractors that is publicly available.  

2. By a self-installer: 

·    Self-installations are permitted in the CSI-Thermal Program. Homeowners or building owners who choose to install a SWH system on their property must attend a CSI-Thermal Program contractor/installer training workshop in order for their SWH system to be eligible for a rebate. 

·    Self-Installers are also required to comply with all applicable laws, codes, regulations, permits and installation requirements.
