The 2019 Title 24 Energy Code brings with it a number of exciting and challenging changes – but one often overlooked change is an entirely new way to demonstrate compliance with the code. The new Energy Design Rating (EDR) is a energy use index, similar to RESNET’s HERS index, but based on Title 24’s systems and structures. Get your home’s EDR below the code standard EDR and you’re good to build.
This brown bag dives deep into the basis and formulation of this new metric and how it compares to the familiar, but now eliminated, compliance percent. We also discuss how the EDR handles California’s new solar mandate and home battery credit. Everything you need to know to understand this new means of judging residential Title 24 energy code compliance.
