Title 24 Update

Interested in the current status of California's Building Energy-Efficiency Standards? The Standards are updated on a three-year cycle and and work is nearly complete for the next iteration, 2019.

On January 18, 2018, the California Energy Commission published its first draft of proposed updates (45-day Draft Express Terms) to the Energy Standards. They opened Docket 17-BSTD-02 to accept comments on the proposed updates for Title 24, 2019. Comments submitted by March 5, 2018 at 5 pm PST will be considered by the Commission as it prepares its final draft of the Energy Standards, also known as the 15-day language.

Comments can also be submitted on the 15-day language once its released for public review; however, no substantial changes to the 15-day language are typically made by the Commmission.

Adoption of the 2019 Energy Standards is expected to occur at the May 2018 CEC Business Meeting.
