Municipal Guide for Vermont Energy Codes and Above-Code Programs October 2016

This guide offers local officials an easy-to-use resource that will:  Provide background information on building Energy Code requirements;  Explain the code process from application through documented compliance;  Describe the benefits of meeting and exceeding Vermont’s Energy Codes, including lower energy costs;  Outline the support available from Efficiency Vermont for builders and homeowners—both to simply meet the minimum requirements of the codes and to receive technical and financial assistance to exceed the codes; and  Make it easier to carry out the tasks associated with towns’ responsibilities for meeting the Codes, as described in Act 89 and passed by the Vermont Legislature in 2013.1 The guide also provides suggestions for how zoning administrators, town energy committees, planning commissions, design review boards, and similar local bodies can call attention to the benefits of energy-efficient construction by raising awareness of how to comply with the Energy Code and how to participate in above-code programs.
