2016-10-25 15:06

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published a white paper that discusses new requirements that help reduce energy consumption in commercial buildings. NEMA WD ARCP 1-2016 Automatic Receptacle Control to Meet ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and California (CA) Title 24 explains the controlled receptacle requirement now appearing within non-residential energy codes, as well as a summary of typical application settings.

Standards such as CA Title 24-2013 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 (and 2013) now require that at least 50 percent of all receptacles in designated spaces of a building be controllable, i.e., automatically able to turn themselves off and on as needed.

This paper covers commercial buildings such as retail and office spaces, institutional, educational, and lodging/hospitality. It pertains to new construction and renovation/remodeling work where building permits and subsequent certificates of occupancy are required.

NEMA WD ARCP 1-2016 is available as an electronic download at no cost on the NEMA website.
