COTE Presents: 2022 Energy Code for Single-Family Lighting

May 31, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

AIA Long Beach / South Bay & Southern California Edison, a Collaborative Partnership


1.0 LU/HSW

Presented on Zoom

This hour-long Code Breaker focuses on requirements in California’s 2022 Single-family Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6) for indoor and outdoor lighting luminaires and controls. We will also review resources available from the industry supporting Single-family lighting design and installation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize that Energy Code Mandatory Measures require use of only “high-efficacy” lighting and address two types of lighting sources that would qualify (lighting that is automatically high efficacy and lighting certified and marked as high efficacy per JA8).
  • Identify Mandatory Measures for lighting controls by location.
  • Identify specific lighting technologies that meet the 2022 high-efficacy requirements including JA8 certified products.
  • Identify available lighting resources and interactive tools on Energy Code Ace, California Energy Commission, and other industry resources.
