New Energy Codes Effective July 1, 2014 for Construction Projects in Morro Bay
California's Building Energy Efficiency Standards are updated by the California Building Standards Commission on an approximately 3-year cycle. The new 2013 standards become effective on July 1, 2014, and improve upon the current 2008 standards for new construction, additions and alterations to residential and non-residential buildings.
