Please join us for our August presentation:

Shedding Some Light on the New York State Energy Code

Starting with a tour of Se'lux, one of the Hudson Valley's premier lighting manufacturers, we will then hear a presentation on the Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State, and the ramifications therein for commercial lighting design. 

This presentation will serve to familiarize the audience with the layout and content of New York's Commercial Energy Code and its requirements.  We will identify those sections of the Energy Code that are most often misunderstood, and are the most challenging to understand, with a special focus on the requirements for lighting.
This Program will give the participants a clear understanding of the following:
  • Energy Code requirements of current and future building codes and standards in New York State
  • Energy and cost consequences of not meeting compliance in key areas
  • Lighting Power Density (LPD) calculations required to meet code
  • Lighting Power Allowance calculations required to meet code
  • Minimum requirements for lighting controls
Tuesday, August 14th, 6PM
5 Lumen Lane, Highland
