    ACE Changes to the energy code fact sheet

    2019 California Energy Code
    January 1, 2020 Title 24 Energy Code changes are coming!

    On January 1, 2020, the California Energy Code (commonly known as Title 24 Energy) will be implemented, replacing the 2016 Energy Code. The new code will be known as the 2019 California Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6; Building Efficiency Standards). The Energy Commission is estimating that new single-family houses will use about 7% less energy when built under the 2019 Code vs. the 2016 Code. When factoring in solar photovoltaics, a single-family house built under the new Standards is estimated to use about 53% less energy than under the 2016 Standards.
