ABOUT US - PURPOSE
The Solar Rating & Certification Corporation currently administers a certification, rating and labeling program for solar collectors and a similar program for complete solar water heating systems.
The SRCC's certification program operating guidelines, test methods & minimum standards, and rating methodologies require the administration of nationally accepted equipment tests on solar equipment by independent laboratories that are approved by the SRCC. The test results and product data are evaluated by the SRCC to determine the product's compliance with the minimum standards for certification, and to calculate the performance ratings.
Equipment that has been certified and rated by the SRCC is required to bear the SRCC certification seal, which shows the performance rating for that product. In addition, each certified product is published by the SRCC in a directory. Each product's directory listing contains information on the product's material and specifications, as well as the certified thermal performance rating.
