The FCC did only after SCOTUS had weighed in and said it could only
because the FCC (and thus the Feds) had pre-empted the field and could
do so under the interstate commerce clause of the Constitution. In other
words because Congress had given the FCC sole authority over the care
and feeding of radio and TV in the US. There is no similar agency in the
US for solar panels.

I am not sure they can, at least using the same legal idea as was
used in the FCC.
