What’s Title 24 Lighting Acceptance?
As of July 1st, 2014, the California Energy Commission implemented some amendments to the California Building Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Parts 1 and 6). These amendments require that lighting controls and devices must be tested, proven, and appropriately certified as properly installed and operational before occupancy permits can be issued to any building, especially industrial and commercial. This basically means that the lighting control devices have to be proven as operational before people can actually live (or work, as the case may be) in any building.
The agency tasked with the responsibility of adopting, implementing and updating the energy efficiency of the many buildings in the state of California is the California Energy Commission. However, local city and county enforcement agencies have also been given the express authority to ensure that buildings (as well as their owners and occupants) are in full compliance with the various building codes that are applicable to them, including those which are related to the efficiency of energy.
Ever since 1978 when they were first enacted into the law, the Energy Efficiency Standards have been directly responsible for making buildings more comfortable and accommodating for occupants. They have also been responsible for the lower energy costs that building owners and occupants incur and they also go a long way in reducing the emissions of hazardous greenhouse gases, thereby lowering the contribution to global warming to a large extent. These Standards ensure that builders make use of the most energy-efficient technologies and construction methods when constructing buildings in the state. In the event that a building is not compliant with these Standards, they’ll be embroiled in a battle with the state’s legal system and legal action will be taken against them.
