CLTC’s updated Residential Lighting Guide is designed to help builders and lighting industry professionals navigate the residential lighting portion of California’s newest Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6). The new standards take effect July 1, 2014 and include updated requirements for high-efficacy lighting, lighting controls, and LED quality.
Explanation of the new requirements for residential lighting are organized by space type (kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor lighting, etc.) and accompanied by best-practice recommendations and sample lighting plans. The new guide also includes information on current lighting technologies.
The guide was sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and developed in collaboration with the California Energy Commission. It is available for download, at no cost, through CLTC's website.
