What is a Title 24 energy compliance report?
The State of California Energy Commission requires that all residential and non-residential buildings (new, additions, and remodels) are built more energy efficient. A Title 24 report is done to assure a building complies with the Energy Commission's requirements.
When does a Title 24 have to be submitted to a building department?
Most building departments will not accept a plan to review for permit without a Title 24 report. All new buildings, additions, and remodels to existing buildings require a Title 24 energy compliance report.
I am adding less than 100 square feet to my building. Do I need a Title 24 report?
All new building, additions, and remodel require a Title 24 energy compliance report no matter how small the building, addition, or remodel.
What do I need to complete a Title 24 report?
You need the architectural plans to be almost completed for the new building. Included in these plans should be:
  • plot plan showing the north arrow
  • location of building, including address and city
  • floor plan showing hard surface and carpet areas
  • square footage of the building
  • window and door sizes, location and type of construction
  • water heater location and quantity
  • heating and air conditioning equipment location
  • lighting plan, especially for the kitchen
For additions and remodels:
  • the above mentioned items
  • existing conditions, including square footage, window type and quantity, floor surface areas, and any of these that are going to be changed or upgraded.
