Time to update standards
The Board should update the Uniform Statewide Building Code to meet or exceed 2018 IEEC standards for all forms of covered construction. Virginia's recent adoption of VCEA demonstrates its commitment to allowing citizens to benefit from technology advances and lower utility bills resulting from energy efficiency. Now, the Board has the opportunity to align energy efficiency in building construction to help achieve VCEA's promise and directly impact consumer's individual control of their utility bills and carbon reduction. Virginia's continued economic prosperity depends on allowing consumers to benefit from advanced technologies and materials designed to meet updated IEEC standards.
