The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at the University of California Davis collaborated with Southern California Edison, RMS Energy Consulting, LLC and the California Energy Commission to provide this educational video in support of the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24).  California’s new Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2020.

The 2019 Energy Code requires that all indoor and outdoor lighting be high efficacy. Some light sources qualify automatically, while others must be certified to the Energy Commission as compliant with the high-efficacy requirements contained in Joint Appendix JA8 of the 2019 reference appendices. This video provides an overview of high efficacy lighting for residential buildings as regulated by the 2019 Energy Code.
