General Information


Major Changes to the Lighting Energy Standards:

When they go into effect

All new lighting Forms

CHANGES TO SOME DEFINITIONS

Changes to LTGC and LTGA FORMS-NONRES

Changes to the CF6R Form-RES

Illuminated Signs have a separate energy review.

Outdoor Lighting Plan Review has been Changed.

2008 Title 24 Energy Standards


2008 Title 24 Energy Standards

The Forms are tied directly to the MAJORITY OF changes

  • If you understand the forms you will understand those changes that affect Permit Technician , Plan Review and Inspector activities.

  • The forms are for the Permit Tech, Plan reviewer and Inspector.

  • Energy Staff have worked and will continue to work on providing simplified forms.


Changes to 2008 Title 24Residential Lighting Standards


Adopted

April 23, 2008 by the State

Effective

August 1, 2009

For building permit applications submitted on or after August 1, 2009

Lighting -RES

  • Where stuff is for low rise Residential Lighting:

    • 2008 Energy Standards

      • Section 150(k)Mandatory

  • You know its low rise residential if it is section 150, 151, or 152 in the 2008 Standards add 119 for controls, ballasts Luminaries.

  • Definitions related to the Standards are in Section 101


DEFINITIONS § 101 (Residential Space Type)


Residential Lighting Compliance Forms


The New CF-6R-LTG-01 to the Form-RES

  • Has 8 Sections that act like a check list and declaration the applicant must check off and turn in to the Inspector prior to the final inspection.

  • The CF6R-LTG-01 is intended as a declaration by the installer BUT

  • Permit Techs and counter staff should go over the form at the time of application submittal with Owner/Builder applicants or residential remodel contractors.

WATTAGE


Luminaire Efficacy and Wattage isNOT based on the initial lamp installed

  • Luminaire input wattage is based upon the type and rating of the luminaire (Socket-not the light bulb), not the type of lamp initially installed in a luminaire

  • A high efficacy lamp screwed into a low efficacy luminaire is still be considered to be a low efficacy lighting system for Title 24 projects
