The Chula Vista Increased Energy Efficiency Ordinance.
Effective date: February 26th, 2010

The City of Chula Vista is a leader in climate protection policies and programs designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Energy efficiency is recognized as the primary method to achieve these reductions as set by our State Government.  Recently the Chula Vista City Council adopted the new 2008 Energy Code  (Title 24 Part-6) with an amendment requiring an increased energy efficient standard.  This amendment will go into effect on February 26th, 2010 as Section 15.26.030 of the Municipal Code.
 All building permits applied for and submitted on or after this date are subject to these increased energy efficiency standards. The increase in energy efficiency is a percentage above the new 2008 Energy Code and is dependant on Climate Zone  (CZ) and type of development proposed.  The designation is as follows:

In CZ #7
New Residential and nonresidential projects that fall within CZ #7 must be at least 15% more energy efficient than the 2008 Energy Code.  Climate Zone #7 encompasses the western 4/5th’s of the City Of Chula Vista.

In CZ #10
New low-rise residential projects (three-stories or less) that fall within CZ #10 must be at least 20% more energy efficient than the 2008 Energy Code.
New non-residential. High-rise residential or hotel/motel projects that fall within CZ #10 must be at least 15% more energy efficient than the 2008 Energy Code.
Climate Zone #10 encompasses the eastern 1/5th’s of the City Of Chula Vista.

In both Climate Zones, low-rise residential additions, remodels or alterations that are less than or equal to 1,000 square feet, and non-residential, high-rise residential or hotel/motel additions, remodels or alterations that are less than or equal to 10,000 square feet, are exempt from the increased energy efficiency standards.  The use of an Energy Design Professional is encouraged at the earliest point possible for your project.
