Welcome to CalCERTS.

Published on: August 28, 2014


On May 14, 2014, The California Energy Commission(CEC) approved CalCERTS, Inc. as the first HERS Provider under the 2013 Standards. CalCERTS, Inc. is now approved for Residential Alterations, Newly Constructed Homes, and Non-Residential Buildings. We continue to be approved for Whole House Ratings.


On July 1, 2014 the 2013 Standards go into effect. We look forward to working with all industry partners at that time; in the meanwhile we will continue to keep you informed regarding changes from the 2008 Standards to 2013 standards and any additional requirements for HERS Raters under the new regulations. CalCERTS, Inc. will release an announcement soon regarding the changes to the Signature process, and we will help HERS Raters, Installers, and Energy Consultants prepare for these changes.


Training for the 2013 Standards has already begun, and Raters that have successfully completed our Update training are now certified. Update courses, and full courses for new Raters, are available now; the training schedule can be found on our website.

Early Adoption

The 2013 Standards have already been adopted by some builders and building departments, and some Energy Consultants have submitted projects using the 2013 Standards as well. CalCERTS, Inc. is able to accommodate registration of 2013 CF-1Rs and verification of those documents to building departments or utilities starting immediately.

We are looking forward to working with industry partners as a Provider and trainer for the 2013 Standards.
