Steve Mesh on California’s Title 24 Energy Code and Lighting Controls

California has been a historical leader in terms of state energy codes. California’s Title 24 has led the way by restricting allowable LPDs (Lighting Power Density) as well as mandating specific types of lighting controls. However, in the past 5-10 years, other codes have made great strides in catching up to the stringency of California’s Title 24. Both ASHRAE 90.1-2016 as well as IECC 2015 have provisions that are much more closely aligned with Title 24 than they used to be. This should make life easier for both specifiers as well as manufacturers since required control equipment doesn’t vary as much based on the project location as it used to. This article by Steve Mesh introduces the Title 24 energy code and its lighting control requirements. http://lightingcontrolsassociation.org/2018/04/23/12744/
