[ARCHIVED] Amendments to 780 CMR (Building Code) Energy Provisions Effective August 12, 2016

Energy provision amendments include 780 CMR 13 (commercial energy efficiency standards), section 11 of 780 CMR 51 (residential energy standards), and 780 CMR 115 Appendix AA (Stretch Energy Code).

Energy code amendments to each of the amended 780 CMR chapters contain a “concurrency” provision. In summary, the concurrency period (beginning August 12, 2016, and going through but not after January 1, 2017) allows persons seeking building permits to submit plans and other required documents that conform to either the energy provisions in effect prior to August 12, 2016, or the amended energy provisions effective August 12, 2016, but not a combination of the two. Beginning January 2, 2017, all building permits and submitted documents must conform to the amended energy provisions.
