The Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) is responsible for approving all solar water and that are sold or manufactured in Florida.
The system approval process was mandated by the Florida State Legislature as part of the Solar Energy Standards Act which required that beginning in 1980 all solar energy systems manufactured or sold in Florida meet standards established by FSEC.
The FSEC standards program has been designed to meet the intent of the legislation while also helping the Florida solar industry to develop quality products, aiding building departments in product approval, and instilling confidence in the consumer who chooses to use solar energy in their residence or business.
