Solar ready design is important if photovoltaic (PV) or solar hot
water (SHW) technologies are to be installed on a building at any
time during the building's lifespan. Solar ready also allows owners
to take advantage of a changing energy market. The economics for
installing solar on a new building are not always compelling, but,
in the future, that picture could change with rising electricity
prices and/or falling solar technology costs. It is important to
recognise that solar ready itself does not reduce energy use or
replace conventional energy with green energy. Solar ready does not
contribute toward carbon emissions reduction until actual solar
capacity is installed. Instead, solar ready has the potential to
act as a catalyst for future installations and market expansion by
reducing balance of system costs at the time of installation. In
order to see this benefit, solar ready must become a widespread
practice. This book explores the mechanisms for encouraging solar
ready design and construction.
