Energy Code Training

View these 30 minute presentations from John O'Neil, Lighting Control Specialist of Pulse Products: 

Minnesota 2015 Energy Code: Effective June 2, 2015, the new Minnesota 2015 Energy Code is being enforced. Since the past code was ASHRAE 90.1 2004, the new energy code has many additional requirements. This presentation describes the additional needs of the Lighting Controls per the State Energy Code. Special attention should be given to Mandatory requirements. Note, this code does not require receptacle control.

ASHRAE 90.1 2010: LEED does not recognize the Minnesota 2015 Energy Code for use with LEED certified buildings. For this reason, the State Energy Code allows the use of the ASHRAE 90.1 2021 in lieu of the State Code. This code is unabridged so you must meet all code requirements without exception. This energy code requires receptacle controls. This code must be followed for any LEED Certified Building.
