REIA fights for the right combination of technology, financial incentive programs, public interest, and environmental policies that support continued growth in the renewable energy industry, creating more jobs and a stronger economic future for New Mexico.
REIA Takes Action Through; Statewide Standards
REIA Statewide Standards committee has been meeting for two years to develop a simple permitting form that can be adapted for each jurisdiction’s use. The form covers photovoltaics and solar thermal. We are considering adding geothermal.
The Statewide Standards for Solar Thermal Committee is currently meeting weekly Thursdays at 4 PM to extend the permitting package drafted in 2010 for PV to include solar thermal. For more information you can contact Chair Kristy Dyer.
Current Reading for Statewide Standards for Solar Thermal:
- ASTM E1160 – 87(2007) Standard Guide for On-Site Inspection and Verification of Operation of Solar Domestic Hot Water Systems
- ASTM E1056 – 85(2007) Standard Practice for Installation and Service of Solar Domestic Water Heating Systems for One- and Two-Family Dwellings
- Canadian Standards Association CSA F383-08 Installation of packaged solar domestic hot water systems
- 2009 IAPMO Uniform Solar Energy Code
