Energy Code Compliance Takes Effect October 1
Note on your calendars that October 1, 2020, is the hard date for energy code compliance enforcement becoming more robust. All permits pulled on or after October 1 must be accompanied by the energy survey paperwork. Asking for it on the front-end will help reduce calls to the office to amend permits. Please reach out to your subs affected by this requirement, especially those subs who do not utilize technology as part of their daily routine.
