IL Adopts Stretch Energy Code

Starting June 30th of this year, Illinois municipalities can adopt the newly finalized Illinois Stretch Energy Code. A Stretch Energy Code allows communities to mandate greater levels of energy efficiency in buildings than would be achieved by simply following the base code (currently the 2021 Illinois Energy Conservation Code), and allows them to do this with a consistent pathway that applies statewide. Illinois now joins Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Colorado and a handful of other states in offering a standardized Stretch Code.
