The CAHP is designed for the performance-based approach for compliance. Compliance with the 2013 Title 24 Standards must be demonstrated through the performance method
utilizing approved California Energy Commission (CEC) compliance software. The documents must be created and signed by a Certified Energy Analyst (CEA)*. Compliance must be demonstrated for each building as a whole and may not group unrelated or detached buildings together.

 

Congrats to Mike Lehr!
