The 2018 Washington State Energy Code has officially been adopted and put into effect. While the intent of the code is noble, many people are finding it more difficult than ever to obtain a building permit, whether it is for a commercial or residential application. All new residential construction is now required to meet a minimum number of energy credits in order to obtain a permit. The requirements for commercial construction have become increasingly complex, as well. Do you know if your building is subject to a Total System Performance Ratio (TSPR)?
