The previous versions of the Seattle Energy Code dating back to the year 2000 have now been posted on the Seattle Energy Code website. These earlier versions can all be downloaded from the Seattle Energy Code History page which is accessed from the right hand navigation tab on the Seattle Energy Code homepage at www.seattle.gov/DPD/Codes/Energy_Code/Overview/history.asp.
DPD published a notice on June 9, 2011 that the Draft Director’s Rule 11-2011, Alternate Means of Compliance to Energy Code Requirements for On-Site Renewable Energy Systems, was available for comment through June 24. In terms of implementation:
- DPD will review any comments and decide whether revisions are necessary.
- The DR could take effect as soon as the end of June, and would then be applicable to building permit applications submitted after the effective date.
Hard-copies of the 2009 Seattle Energy Code are available for purchase at the DPD Applicant Services Center on the 20th floor of the Seattle Municipal Tower.
An electronic version of the entire 2009 Seattle Energy Code (2 MB) is posted and linked from the 2009 Seattle Energy Code update page: www.seattle.gov/DPD/Codes/Energy_Code/Overview/2009_ecupdate.asp.
Work is underway to update the Seattle Energy Code website 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.
