Energy Commission's Solar Equipment Lists

The listing request forms used to request listing of Photovoltaic (PV) Modules and Inverters to the Energy Commission's Solar Equipment Lists have been updated. The updated forms and associated instructions are available on the GoSolarCalifornia website, on the specific equipment pages (PV Modules & Inverters), these pages can be accessed below.

The updated request forms must be used for any listing request submitted on or after February 1, 2019. Prior to February 1, 2019, manufacturers may continue to use the previous version of the forms or this updated version of the forms.

Please note that the Energy Commission's Solar Equipment Lists updates are typically completed twice a month, on the 1st business day of the month and the 15th of the month or the following business day.

Submit inquiries regarding the Energy Commission's Solar Equipment Lists to the California Energy Commission at For any equipment listing related questions, please contact the Solar Equipment Call Center at 916-654-4120.

All solar energy systems receiving ratepayer-based incentives in California must utilize equipment listed on these pages and maintained by the Energy Commission. With the enactment of Senate Bill 1 (Murray) in 2006, the Energy Commission was directed to establish eligibility criteria, conditions for incentives, and rating standards for projects applying for ratepayer-funded incentives for solar energy systems. The Eligible Equipment Lists cover PV modules, inverters (including smart inverters beginning in September 2017), meters and related equipment. Please note that equipment on the Energy Commission's lists have undergone tests to achieve minimal safety and performance standards. The Energy Commission and the State of California make no claim or warranty on the equipment and its safety, performance or durability. Anyone considering installing solar energy systems are encouraged to conduct their own research.
