Montana Residential Energy Code Field Study

A research project in the state of Montana identified opportunities to reduce homeowner utility bills in residential single-family new construction by increasing compliance with the state energy code. The study was initiated in May 2018; data collection began in June 2018 and continued through September 2018. Analysis of the data has led to a better understanding of the energy features present in homes and identified nearly $192,000 in potential annual savings to Montana homeowners that could result from increased compliance with the Montana Residential Energy Code
