The 2009 Energy Code requirements for residential spaces took effect statewide on Jan. 1, 2011 (the 2009 Seattle Energy Code requirements for nonresidential spaces took effect on Nov. 23, 2010).
To determine the 2009 Seattle Energy Code requirements, you need to look at both the 2009 Washington State Energy Code and Seattle ordinance 123430. Wherever the Seattle ordinance contains modifications to a section, the ordinance language supersedes the 2009 Washington State Energy Code. There is not one document at this point that folds all the text together.
Updated versions of the electronic compliance forms for nonresidential and multifamily residential spaces are posted on the Seattle Energy Code website. Work is underway to prepare code insert pages with the Seattle amendments, and to update the Seattle Energy Code website, single-family compliance forms, CAMs and Director’s Rules.
See the “2009 Seattle Energy Code Update” link in the upper right hand corner of the Seattle Energy Code homepage: www.seattle.gov/dpd/energy. New material will be posted as it becomes available.
