Title 24 is an energy efficiency standard that was created in 1977 to improve energy consumption throughout the state of California. It is regularly updated by the California Energy Commission to allow for new methods and technologies, and to constantly promote better and more efficient usage of California’s energy resources.
The positive impact that Title 24 has had on California’s energy consumption is unmistakable. By implementing these standards, California has become the leader in the world’s energy efficiency, having increased their energy savings to 29% more than international standards. Although the environmental improvements are the primary motive of the Title 24 initiative, there are many other benefits associated with these guidelines as well, the foremost of which is the financial savings for both residential and commercial consumers. Since its foundation, the energy standard put into effect by the California Energy Commission has saved Californians billions by greatly reducing electricity bills across the state.
