Rater Update on Energy Compliance Threshold

July/August | 2014

Update on the Energy
Compliance Threshold

As you may know, Build It Green has been working to evaluate an appropriate threshold above the 2013 Energy Code. Based on current evaluations the threshold for GreenPoint Rated will be a 10% compliance margin over the 2013 Title 24 Part 6. Please read our memo that describes the position as well as expected point differentiation between previous and current rating systems. We have also provided a document outlining the methodology supporting this position.
