NYSERDA seeks comments on the Draft NYStretch 2023 Energy Code. Click here to download a copy of the Draft Residential NYStrech 2023 Code including proposed Modification. 

To achieve the carbon reduction goals outlined in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, or CLCPA, the efficiency of new construction in New York State must advance at rate faster than the national model codes have achieved to date. NYSERDA developed NYStretch 2020 as a model code for use by New York municipalities to meet their energy and climate goals by accelerating the savings obtained through their local building energy codes. NYStretch 2023 builds on NYStretch 2020 to develop an even more efficient code that is readily adoptable as a strategy to drive further reductions in greenhouse emissions required to meet CLCPA.

NYSERDA seeks input that will support and inform the development of NYStretch 2023 Energy Code. Please provide your feedback on the existing  Draft Residential NYStretch 2023 Energy Code. Comments on the specific code sections is requested and are identified in the system. However, general comments are also welcome.

At the end of the comment period on August 30, 2022, NYSERDA will collect, review, and summarize the comments received. It will be noted how those comments were incorporated or why they were not included.
