Solar Hot Water Ready Regulation Rolled Out
Effective on June 21, 2011 the Solar Hot Water Ready Regulation is in force. The regulation was made under s. 692 of the Local Government Act and is not part of the B.C. Building Code. It requires that new single-family dwellings, including dwellings with suites, constructed in 33 municipalities and the rural areas of 3 regional districts include certain construction features that would make the dwellings more easily adaptable for solar hot water heating in the future.
