Update Virginia's Building Code to reflect strong energy efficient standards
I am writing to ask that you update Virginia's residential building code with strong energy efficiency standards, not just to maintain the status quo. Now is the time to modernize the standards that were developed ten years ago, before many technological advances had been made or envisioned. An update to the building code will materially reduce energy use and the size of our carbon footprint. It is your job to keep the best interests of Virginia residents in your focus as you make this important change to the Virginia Building Code. Thank you in advance for looking out for Virginia residents, their children and their grandchildren and the future of our planet!
