    Date Submitted: February 9, 2018 ICC Code: 2015 ICC Performance Code ICC Code Change Number: N/A Code Sections: All Company Affiliation: Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Address: 400 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101 Telephone: 717-705-0372 Email: dmaloskey@pa.gov Detailed Reasons: The 2015 ICC Performance Code presents provisions based on outcomes rather than prescriptive rules. It encourages new design methods by allowing broader options for meeting the intent of the International Codes.

    In June 2015, the United States Department of Energy Pacific Northwest National Laboratory analyzed the cost-effectiveness of the residential provisions of the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (2015 IECC). Based on that analysis, if Pennsylvania advances our baseline 2009 IECC to 2015 IECC, home-owners will realize a life cycle cost savings of $7,697 to $11,231 per home, depending upon climate zone. Additionally, advancing Pennsylvania’s commercial building codes from the current 2009 IECC to the 2015 IECC will result in a 30 percent energy consumption reduction and $0.53/sf savings. Recommendations: To Adopt the Change reasons: Economic and Financial Impacts Proposers Name: Dennis Maloskey
