2012 Energy Code Change Proposals
Every three years new model codes are published. During the year of release the Council, with the assistance of their Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs), reviews and adopts the new editions. In addition, any changes proposed to these new editions, or to the pre-existing state amendments are reviewed. The following are the Energy Code proposals received by the Council as of March 21, 2012
Council Action March 23, 2011: The Council approved a motion to have the Mechanical, Ventilatilation and Energy Codes Committee review, sort and classify proposals into four categories: 1) policy issues to go before the Council for decision before possibly being sent on to the TAG; 2) proposals recommended for disapproval due to previous council actions, policy conflicts, incomplete submittal, etc.; 3) editorial issues to be handled by committee or council; and 4) technical issues to be forwarded to the TAGs for consideration.
