The California Energy Commission will be conducting two workshops on the New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP) in January and February 2012. This is an opportunity for all interested parties to learn more about the NSHP and changes to the program, the application process, and the NSHP online application tool. The workshops will be conducted on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 from 9am – 4pm at the California Energy Commission, 1516 Ninth Street, Hearing Room B, Sacramento, CA 95814, and Tuesday, February 7, 2012 from 9am – 4pm at the California Energy Commission, 1516 Ninth Street, Hearing Room A, Sacramento, CA 95814.
The NSHP program is a ten-year, $400 million solar program that provides incentives for the installation of photovoltaic solar systems on new, energy-efficient homes in California's investor-owned utility electric service territories.
This workshop will be taught by staff members of the California Energy Commission and will include information on the following topics: NSHP Guidebook (4th Edition), application and payment process, required documents, NSHP energy efficiency requirements, NSHP online application tool, submitting applications and payment claims electronically, NSHP CECPV Calculator, and the NSHP application clinic (for in-person attendees, by appointment only).
Solar contractors, retailers and installers, homeowners, builders, developers, and energy consultants would benefit from attending this event. All are encouraged to attend NSHP training workshops in person; however, for those unable to attend in person, WebEx online meeting services will be available. Seating is limited and registration is required. Please RSVP the Renewable Energy Office by e-mail with the following information: participant's name, company name, title, e-mail address, and phone number.
