City May Stop Energy Conservation Standards All Together


The city of Springfield may stop enforcing energy-efficiency provisions of the city’s building code entirely… rather than impose new stringent standards mandated by the state.

 

State law requires the city to use the most recent published International Energy Conservation Code standards… but builders say that would increase the cost of new construction.

 

For now, a proposal to adopt those stricter standards remains stalled in a City Council committee… and unless that changes, Mayor Mike Houston says the city will not be able to enforce any energy-efficiency codes.
