2019 Local Energy Ordinances

In preparation for the January 1, 2020 effective date of the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, the California Codes and Standards Reach Codes Program provides technical support to jurisdictions that wish to adopt a local energy ordinance (reach code). The program facilitates adoption and implementation of the code by providing resources such as cost-effectiveness studies, model language, sample findings, and other supporting documentation.

When you download a file, be sure to select “Yes, email me local codes news.” to receive notifications when new versions of the studies are released or new resources become available.

The Reach Codes program is currently preparing cost-effectiveness analyses and reports which can support ordinances that require residential new construction and nonresidential new construction projects to exceed the minimum state code requirements.
