TITLE 24 & GREEN POWER

 

California Title 24 Overview

 

Title 24 & Green Power Energy standards for residential & nonresidential buildings

 

About the current and new standards (in development)

Title 24, Part 6, of the California Code of Regulations are Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and

Nonresidential Buildings that were established in 1978 in response to a legislative mandate to reduce

California's energy consumption. The standards are updated periodically to allow consideration and possible

incorporation of new energy efficiency technologies and methods. Primary means for reducing energy use

is to limit allowable lighting power in a building.

 

Building Types: the Code Applies to:

[130-149] Nonresidential, high-residential, motel/hotel and outdoor lighting;

[150] High-rise residential and hotel/motel guest rooms, with exception;

[150] Low-rise residential [100] 2005 Title 24 also applies to unconditioned buildings and

outdoor lighting systems, including indoor and outdoor signs.

 

Exceptions include some temporary and qualified historic buildings.

 

Title 24 Requirements Include:

• No unconditioned space exemption

• Control certifications

• Skylight and daylighting requirements

• Further reductions in lighting power

• Clarifications and requirements for retail spaces

• Outdoor lighting zones, energy calculations and controls

• Clarifications and requirements for sign control

 

Residential requirements mandate Boca Flasher products conform to (or most often exceed)

the lighting power values for applicable categories, specific task areas and performance.

Boca Flasher is committed to compliance with industry and relevant standards as well as to best practices.

2008 Standards - Effective January 1, 2010

2008 Standards went into effect January 1, 2010, and supersede the 2005 Standards. Projects that apply for a building permit on or after this date must comply with the 2008 Standards Protection Agency.

Green Power

Green PowerLED Lighting is by Far the Most Green-Oriented Source of Illumination

There is a growing awareness of the energy-efficiency benefits of LEDs, and an adoption trend should continue through the end of the decade. The U.S. Department of Energy has, especially since 2005, spent millions of dollars intended to progress the growth of LED lighting.

Department of Energy on LED Lighting

While there are many technical unknowns today, the results of the past few years suggest that there are no fundamental reasons why these (LED) light sources can’t achieve efficiencies 10-12X that of incandescent lamps, and 2X that of fluorescent lamps.

 

The energy saving prospect is huge. When SSL reaches these efficiencies, the U.S. will save annually the output of about 30 large power plants, or about 6-7% of our country’s total electrical energy usage. This will result in a savings of $17 billion in annual electrical costs (at 2003 rates). Accompanying environmental benefits are large, and include a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of 155 million tons, and about a million tons in combined nitrous oxides and sulfur dioxide.

 

The US DOE (Department of Energy) predicts that LED technology will continue on a steep development curve of greater efficiency and lower costs. The DOE estimates that by within 4 years, LED efficacy will be over 100 lm/w and total LED revenues in the signage industry will be over $5 billion. Unlike neon or fluorescent systems, LED systems are class two rated and can use lighter gauge wire, connectors, wire nuts, etc. for cost savings and ease of installation.

 • LED lighting is by far the most Green-oriented source of illumination. Boca is

   conscientious at all stages in developing and producing products, from quality

   controls on the raw materials used, to operating our factory in an

   environmentally responsible manner.

 

• Cost of lighting is not simply the up-front cost. LEDs have significant benefits

  over conventional lighting when these primary key areas are considered

  together: product costs, power consumption, energy consumption, labor/

  replacement costs, lifetime and light output.

 

• Whether it is general illumination or application-specific lighting, Boca

  continues to develop products that expand the uses and benefits of LED-based

  solutions.
