Indiana Extends Energy Codes

building codesOutgoing Indiana Governor Mike Pence in late December issued an executive order that extends the state’s energy codes for one year, according to the Indiana Business News.

The Vice President Elect said in a statement that the move was a way to stave off the dangers of having no rules in place, which would have occurred if he didn’t act. Initially, the site reported, the administration intended to let the rules lapse. They made the move to allow time for ongoing rulemaking processes to run their courses.

Energy codes exist on more than one jurisdictional level. National codes, for instance, can supplement and be referenced by those at the state or local level. In November, Energy Manager Today looked at the world of standards and codes. The post, which included a link to an interactive map of state codes, concluded that standards “are moving in the same general direction of reducing energy usage and increasing efficiency, it is a bit of cat herding.”
