VA needs to be more energy efficient

It is time for Virginia to meet or exceed the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) for all forms of construction covered by Virginia's Uniform Statewide Building Code.  Virginia has lagged behind in conservation requirements and with our new VCEA, energy efficient buildings and any rehabs are going to be necessary.  I did not realize it but nationally buildings represent 70% of electricity consumption!  We need to start now in making our building codes more efficient.

Thank you,

Jessie Clark
