T20-T24-Icons-1200x383

California Title 24

  • Title 24 (T24) of the California Code of Regulations sets forth California’s Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings.

  • It is California’s Energy Code and part of the California Building Standards Code, covering new construction of, and additions and alterations to, residential and nonresidential buildings.

  • Since Title 24 is a building design code, in general, lighting products do not have a product-level compliance path.

  • Certification to and/or compliance with Title 24 requirements is not required to sell product in California but compliance with the design code is required for new construction and major renovation projects.

  • The California Energy Commission updates the Building Energy Efficiency Standards every three years.
