The Public Utility Commission has regulatory authority over solar energy devices installed and used in the state of Texas. The Commission can choose to adopt standards pertaining to the rating of solar energy devices, and any person who rates, labels, or certifies the performance of a solar energy device in this state must comply with these standards. Adopted standards are subject to periodic review. If national standards for rating and certifying solar energy devices are developed by a federal agency in conjunction with the states and industry, the commission shall adopt those national standards as the standards for use in this state.
