What is Title 24
Created in 1978 by the California Building Standards Commission in response to a legislative mandate to reduce California's energy consumption. Title 24 utilizes energy efficiency technologies to provide California with an adequate, reasonably priced, environmentally sound supply of energy.
What's new in Title 24
The 2013 standards which took effect on July 1st, 2014, are estimated to increase the energy efficiency of commercial buildings by 30%. This is achieved through the use of more comprehensive lighting controls and the requirement for acceptance testing to ensure lighting systems are operating properly.
What is acceptance testing?
Acceptance Testing is one part of a multi-stage compliance program. The tests are conducted by certified Lighting Control Acceptance Test Technicians to verify the Title 24 installation requirements are met and the installed equipment and lighting systems operate properly.

Paganini Electric has been installing lighting control systems for many years.
Recently we had the opportunity to work with CalEnergy on a large Wattstopper DLM installation in San Francisco. CalEnergy provided a level of startup service we have not experienced in any of our
previous projects. There was a real commitment to work together to achieve a complete operating system for our customer. The communication with our staff was excellent. The extra effort and being available beyond normal working hours to insure our success on the project was invaluable.
I look forward to working with their team on future projects.
When you specifically talk about CalEnergy Corporation, you are speaking about dependability and integrity. This company has helped us on a few different projects, during the bid process and on actual jobs
that we have been awarded. From a personal stand point we really appreciate the knowledge that they carry with Title 24 compliance for Electrical projects. They are able to consult on design builds,
provide a Bill of Material for both value engineering and design builds and help when
all you need is a 3 rd party compliance technician. These are just some of
the features that we have used with there company and have found there pricing reasonable and
their availability wonderful.
