Lighting & Energy Code Compliance? You Got This.

Lighting and Energy Code Compliance? You Got This

Did you know that U.S. buildings consume 40 percent of our nation’s energy? Lighting controls help improve our energy efficiency, lower utility bills and guide us toward a sustainable future.

At the same time, contractors must follow a myriad of lighting and energy code regulations. How do you remember all of the requirements or access them easily when you’re out on a job site?

That’s where Leviton comes in. Our Code Connection helps you navigate the requirements quickly and easily. Forget navigating to multiple websites to browse through hundreds of pages of code. We’ve summarized the lighting control and energy submetering requirements for each of the big three energy codes—ASHRAE 90.1, IECC and Title 24—and created online and app versions to make it easier for you to access on the go.

Search by application (for example, office, restaurant, classroom) or by specific sections of the code. Leviton also offers suggestions for lighting and energy submetering solutions to bring any project up to compliance.

  • ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Because states are using different ASHRAE versions (2010, 2013, 2016), the Leviton app displays the 2010 code and shows the 2013 and 2016 versions as highlighted changes. Learn more here.
  • IECC If your state or municipality is still using the 2009 or 2012 standards, the free app from Leviton® highlights any changes that took effect with the 2015 version. Learn more here.
  • Title 20 and Title 24, Part 6 applies only to projects in California and is part of the state Energy Commission’s Building Energy Efficiency Program. Learn more here. 

Best of all? Anytime you need assistance before, during or after a project, Leviton® is here to help! Call, email, live chat or see our online library of installation videos.
