The drafts are separated into the Commercial Provisions and Residential Provisions. Click the links above to view the Integrated Drafts. The Appendices A, B and C were not changed from the 2012 editions and are also open for code change proposals.
Energy Code Proposal FormsThere are two new code change proposal forms to be used with the 2015 WSEC Integrated Draft, The first is for proposals for amendments to the technical provisions of the energy code. The second form is for proposals that are strictly editorial. We will still accept proposals on the old generic forms as well.
