In 2016, Texas updated its statewide energy codes placing local governments in the position of power to implement and enforce them within their jurisdictions. Energy codes are adopted statewide and serve as the baseline for all building practices. The local adoption of energy and building codes proves challenging for industries to remain informed of when code changes occur. Therefore it is up to the local jurisdictions to provide clear instruction to enable code compliance. With over 1,200 cities, towns and villages that have the authority to implement energy codes, it is important to equip these local governments with the proper tools and resources.
