Code Compliance Made Easy

For decades, a strained energy grid and renewed attention on energy efficiency has been a major focus of the federal government, green building advocates, and building advocates, and building owners who are looking to reduce their energy costs while increasing property value. Driven by Department of Energy mandates, energy codes have evolved to make buildings more efficient and support a more sustainable future, but keeping up with changing building requirements can be daunting for electrical engineers and contractors who have to meet code and their customer's design and performance requirements.
