Reach Code Cost-Effectiveness Study: Nonresidential New Construction
Analysis documenting cost-effective combinations of measures that exceed the minimum state
requirements for design in newly-constructed nonresidential buildings. Buildings specifically examined include medium office, medium retail, and small hotels. Measures include energy efficiency, solar photovoltaics (PV), and battery storage. In addition, the report includes a comparison between a baseline mixed-fuel design and all-electric design for each occupancy type.
Used as the basis for model reach codes.
