Whistler is a BC Solar Hot Water Ready community.
The Resort Municipality of Whistler has opted in to the Province of British Columbia Solar Hot Water Ready Regulation.
This requires that new single family homes be designed in such a way that in future, a solar hot water system may be installed.
Being "solar hot water ready" helps homeowners:
- increase energy efficiency;
- reduce costs of solar installations and energy consumption; and
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Read all the specific requirements in the Guide to the Provice of BC Solar Hot Water Ready Regulation.
Consult this handout at the design stage for your new Single Family Home to ensure you can meet the requirements.
