GLRPPR Sector Resource: Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial and Residential Buildings

Title:
Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial and Residential Buildings

Abstract:
Public Act 093-0936 (Illinois Energy Conservation Code for Commercial Buildings) was signed into law in August, 2004. Public Act 096-0778 was signed into law on August 28, 2009 amending the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Act by including residential buildings and amending the name of the act to the Energy Efficient Building Act. The Law is designed to help protect the environment and reduce energy consumption. By following an energy conservation code, property owners can reduce air pollution, moderate energy demand and stabilize energy costs and electric, oil, and gas supplies. This portion of the IL DCEO web site provides a link to the text of the legislation, an overview of what the law requires and its goals, links to online training information related to this code, and contacts for further information.
