STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen

 

AN ACT relative to the state building code provisions for energy conservation in new building construction.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

181:1  New Section; Building Code Review Board; Energy Code Compliance.  Amend RSA 155-A by inserting after section 10 the following new section:

155-A:10-a  Energy Code Compliance Form.  The state building code review board shall prescribe by rule and make available to the public, in electronic formats, a simplified residential energy code compliance form based upon the energy provisions in the International Residential Code and the International Energy Conservation Code identified in RSA 155-A:1.  The correctly completed form shall be accepted by all code enforcement authorities within the state of New Hampshire as one method of verification that the applicable project meets the code requirements.  Completed compliance forms shall be submitted to the building official in those municipalities that have adopted an enforcement mechanism under RSA 674:51.  For municipalities without an adopted code enforcement mechanism, completed compliance forms shall be submitted to the New Hampshire public utilities commission, on behalf of the building code review board, for verification that the applicable project meets the code requirements.  The public utilities commission shall then forward the reviewed compliance forms to the municipality for retention in property records.

181:2  Building Code Review Board; Members; Reference Changed.  Amend RSA 155-A:10, I(k) to read as follows:

(k)  One representative from the [state energy conservation code office under RSA 155-D] New Hampshire public utilities commission, nominated by the [New Hampshire public utilities] chairman of the commission.

181:3  Repeal.  RSA 155-D, relative to energy conservation in new building construction, is repealed.

181:4  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
