The Solar Energy Standards Act of 1976, Section 377.705, Florida Statutes, directs the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) to develop and promulgate standards for solar energy systems manufactured or sold in the state; to establish criteria for testing performance of solar energy systems; and to maintain the necessary capability for testing or evaluating performance of solar energy systems. In 1978 the Legislature amended the act to require, effective January 1, 1980, that all solar energy systems manufactured or sold in the state meet the standards established by the Center and display accepted results of approved performance tests in a manner prescribed by the Center.
