Arizona utility pushes for change in building codes to boost efficiency on all commercial projects

The goal is to get owners of small commercial buildings on the energy-efficiency bandwagon. 

October 04, 2013 |

Many large construction projects in Arizona are going green by paying attention to energy efficiency, but smaller buildings that are often rented out haven't yet jumped on the bandwagon. An Arizona-based utility, Salt River Project, is trying to change that by pushing for revisions to building codes.

“There is no time better to install cost-effective energy-efficiency measures than during the initial design and construction of a building,” says Dan Dreiling of SRP.
