Texas State Certification of Commercial Building Energy Codes

The State of Texas, in compliance with the Energy Conservation and Production Act (ECPA) of 1976, as amended, has reviewed the provisions of ASHRAE 90.1-2007 for energy efficiency in commercial buildings.  The Texas State Energy Conservation Office adopted teh 2009 IECC effective April 1, 2011 for all commercial and residential buildings greater than three stories above grade.  A study done by the Energy System's Laboratory of Texas A&M University deomstrates that the 2009 IECC code results in equivalent overall energy savings performance when compared to ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 for large office buildings in Texas.
