Are solar panels required for an ADU?

The 2019 Energy Code PV system prescriptive requirements under Section 150.1(c)14 apply only to newly constructed detached accessory dwelling units (ADUs). Exceptions from this requirement may be granted based on limited solar exposure or high snow load.  See the City Solar Photovoltaic Exceptions handout for more information.
