Residential Energy Code: ASHRAE 90A-1980 and 90B-1975, mandatory statewide. Commercial Energy Code: ASHRAE/IES 90.1, mandatory statewide. The latest edition of BOCA has traditionally been adopted as a statewide code unamended. However, 1996 legislation froze the codes at the July 1, 1995 level unless the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) deems certain provisions of the new codes as essential to carry out the intent of the law. The Codes Office of DCA is reviewing 96 BOCA for adoption. It is expected to take another 6 months. A coalition of state stakeholders is working with DCA to improve New Jersey's residential energy standards. DCA WILL FORM AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE TO SET THE PARAMETERS FOR A STUDY THAT WILL ANALYZE THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MEC. AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT WILL BE HIRED TO PERFORM THE STUDY. DCA WILL USE THE STUDY TO DECIDE HOW TO REVISE RESIDENTIAL ENERGY CODES. The Board of Public Utilities received FY96 DOE funding to promote the adoption of an energy code that meets or exceeds the MEC and to provide training and certification for the MEC.
