Changes Coming to the Michigan Energy Code

Significant changes are underway for commercial buildings with the 2015 Michigan Energy Code taking effect on September 20, 2017. This is the state’s first commercial energy efficiency code update in more than six years. The new code introduces significant lighting control provision changes, which can be both confusing and daunting. For example, there is no longer an option to pick from the ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 or IECC 2009 standards. Michigan will now follow one single standard for lighting and lighting controls. The 2015 Michigan Energy Code for commercial buildings largely follows ASHRAE 90.1-2013 with a few exceptions. According to Legrand, the result of these changes will mean significant leaps in energy efficiency and reduction in energy consumption and costs for Michigan.
