Category: Title 24 Standards
The California Energy Code, part 6 of the California Building Standards Code which is title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, also titled The Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings, were created by the California Building Standards Commission in 1978 in response to a legislative mandate to reduce California’s energy consumption. The standards are updated periodically by the California Energy Commission to allow consideration and possible incorporation of new energy efficiency technologies and methods.
The San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) Master Builder Program is back and contracted through TRC Engineering! There are only three more spots left open to builders. The program gives $20,000 to $40,000 of financial support to builders that are willing to recognize and support early adoption of two key 2016 Title 24 measures: high performance attics, and high performance walls. The program also offers on‐site training for your design team and subcontractors, and installation guidance from product manufacturers.
In order to qualify, you must:
- Complete 10 new single‐family project lots (homes) with either one or both measures
- Host a design workshop and value engineering meeting with the project team and program staff
- Agree to feature and promote the project through case studies, industry events, and publication

Here are some previous MasterBuilder Program Participant Write-Ups:
“The California Energy Commission has opened a public process and rulemaking proceeding to adopt changes to the Building Energy Efficiency Standards contained in the California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 24, Part 6 (also known as the California Energy Code), and associated administrative regulations in Part 1 (collectively referred to here as the Standards). The updated standards will be proposed for adoption in 2018 with an effective date of January 1, 2020. Previously open Docket 2016-BSTD-06 for the 2019 Time Dependent Valuation (TDV) of Energy, and Docket 2017-BSTD-01 for pre-rulemaking comments on proposed 2019 Standards measures, are closed. Separate Rulemaking Dockets have been opened for the 2019 Standards (2017-BSTD-02) and the 2019 CALGreen (2017-BSTD-03) updates.
The California Energy Commission staff will conduct workshops to present potential revisions to the Standards and obtain public suggestions and comment. The scope, time, and date of these workshops will be publicly noticed. Go to the public participation page for more information.” – This quote is from the CA Energy Commission Website:
