The Boulder City Council, as of November 25th, adopted new building code requirements that will increase energy efficiency in new commercial buildings by 30%. The requirements will also be raised on residential remodels and additions by 15-50% depending on the size of the remodel.
“These code changes are the next step in aligning building construction regulation with the city’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) goals of reducing greenhouse gases,” said city of Boulder Mayor Shaun McGrath. “Since residential and commercial buildings represent 76 percent of greenhouse gases, strengthening our code for higher energy efficiency is an important step in reducing greenhouse gases.”
