Description:The Solar America Board for Codes and Standards is a collaborative effort of photovoltaic (PV) codes and standards experts who gather and prioritise input from the broad spectrum of PV stakeholders, including policymakers, manufacturers, installers, and consumers. The group administers co-ordinated recommendations to organisations that establish codes and standards for existing and new solar technologies. The Solar America Board for Codes and Standards (Solar ABCs) generates and distributes consensus "best practice" materials, answers code-related questions, and provides feedback to the US Department of Energy (DOE) and other government agencies on issues relating to codes and standards. DOEs Solar Energy Technologies Program funds Solar ABCs as part of its commitment to facilitate the widespread adoption of safe, reliable, and cost-effective solar technologies.
