Your city could be the first to adopt this ordinance

Upgrade electrical panel with sufficient capacity to serve electrical equipment and appliances, and electric vehicle

Electrical panels and subpanels serving common loads in a mixed-fuel building shall have space for overcurrent protective devices and bus bars of adequate capacity to meet potential future electrical requirements

  • Prepare for possibility of electric vehicle purchase and other retrofits
  • Likely only required in older home vintages
  • No direct energy savings associated with enabling measures
Your city could be the first to adopt this ordinance

Pre-wire stove, HVAC and clothes dryer for 240V service

  • Prepare for likely future retrofit. Very small incremental cost at new construction
  • No direct energy savings associated with enabling measures
  • Uncertainty regarding future benefits
Your city could be the first to adopt this ordinance

Conduit to each area with gas equipment sized to serve electrical equipment with equivalent capacity

To facilitate the future electrification of gas equipment in mixed-fuel projects, require installation of raceways sized for conductors adequate to serve the building’s potential electric loads

  • Prepare for likely future retrofit
  • Small incremental cost at new construction
  • No direct energy savings associated with enabling measures
  • Uncertainty regarding future benefits
Your city could be the first to adopt this ordinance

EV-Ready and/or EV-Capable: Increase the number of “EV-Capable” and/or “EV-ready” parking spaces beyond mandatory CALGreen requirements
