ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), a member of the International Code Council of companies and the experts in building product evaluation and certification, issued ESR-4074 to Tesla, Inc. for their Tesla Solar Roof System. This report provides evidence that the Tesla Solar Roof System is in compliance with code requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) and California Building Code (CBC) and California Residential Code (CRC).
The Tesla Solar Roof System is a complete roof covering system composed of electrically active building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) and (inactive) nonBIPV roof tiles, along with flashing and other accessories. The BIPV roof tiles generate electricity from the sun and include photovoltaic modules. The nonBIPV roof tiles are similar to the BIPV roof tiles, except that they do not include photovoltaic cells, and therefore do not generate electricity.
“We are pleased to issue a report to Tesla, a manufacturer of alternative energy systems that relies heavily on ICC-ES’ technical expertise and high-quality reports”, said ICC-ES Senior Staff Engineer Yamil Moya, P.E. “ICC-ES thoroughly examined Tesla’s product information, test reports, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code compliant.”
