The California Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) are actively supporting the California Energy Commission (CEC) in developing the state’s building energy efficiency standard (Title 24). Their joint intent is to achieve significant energy savings through the development of reasonable, responsible, and cost-effective code change proposals for the 2011 code update.
Through Codes and Standards Enhancement (CASE) Studies, the C&S Program provides standards and code-setting bodies with the technical and cost-effectiveness information required to make informed judgments on proposed regulations for promising energy efficiency design practices and technologies. As part of the IOU effort, we invite you to fill out this survey and help shape the next cycle of building codes.
The purpose of this brief 11-question survey is to solicit examples, design guidelines, city ordinances, and other data relevant to solar oriented development to help inform the market understanding, identify examples, and identify stakeholders. Audience of the survey are land use planners, consultants, developers, home builders, cities and others who may potentially influence solar oriented development.
