The New Chicago Code: What You Can Expect
November 16, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
There has been great progress in terms of policy lately and this month we are welcoming back Isaac Elnecave, policy specialist with Phius, to talk about the updated code that was recently adopted by City of Chicago.
The city of Chicago adopted the Chicago Energy Transformation Code in September, 2022. The Chicago Energy Transformation Code is one of the most energy efficient codes in the country. This Webinar will focus on the residential portion of the energy code and highlight the major differences between this new code and the previous energy code in Chicago. We will also show how this code compares to a Phius designed home for the Chicago area to give a sense of how far the city has gone and how far it needs to go to reach net-zero.
