Your Title 24 Headquarters

What Is It?

Energy conservation is critical in California

In a far-reaching initiative to decrease consumption, the California Energy Commission has adopted new Title 24 guidelines that significantly impact lighting in new residential homes and renovations.

As of October 2005, builders are required to install energy efficient technologies in every room of the home. Depending on the room, these include:

• High-efficacy fluorescents, compact fluorescent (CFL) or high-density discharge lamps
• Dimmers
• Occupancy sensors

By using a combination of lighting controls and high-efficacy fixtures, you will effectively meet code requirements, and provide your clients with innovative solutions that save money - now and in the future. And, you will play an important role in significantly reducing lighting energy usage.
