During the recent voting, the California Energy Commission voted 5-0 in favour of the legislation under which it will be mandatory for all new houses and buildings - up to three storeys - to install solar panels by 2020. The move represents a quantum leap in building standards at a national level.
Members said they expect other states to follow suit in coming years. The standards still need approval from the California Building Standards Commission.
GTM's analysis is based on the Commission's prediction that almost 75,000 new homes will be built across California in 2020 alone and could help the state overcome a recent period of sluggish residential solar growth.
The energy commission estimates the new standards could cut energy use in new homes by more than 50%.
In addition to requiring solar panels, both resident and commercial buildings would have updated attic insulation standards and commercial buildings would have stiffer lighting standards.
ClearView Energy Partners LLC has predicted a substantial increase in distributed generation's share of the annual power supply given the new building standards, along with a boost for the state's efforts to create more storage to assist grid management.
"This is a very bold and visionary step that we're taking", said David Hochschild, a member of the Energy Commission.

"That's just going to drive the cost up and make California, once again, not affordable to live", Assemblyman Brian Dahle, the chamber's GOP leader, said Tuesday.
The regulations include exceptions for when solar panels aren't cost-effective or feasible, such as on a home shrouded in shade. Solar energy is not only cheap, but it is also eco-friendly.
California is already the nation's No. 1 market for solar installation.
