TWO PATHWAYS TO COMPLIANCE
Property owners can comply with the energy efficiency requirements by following either a performance or prescriptive path.
- Performance Path: The performance path requires a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 120. The HERS index is used for the verification of energy performance. A HERS score must be performed by a rater accredited by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET).
Search for a HERS certified energy rater through RESNET.
- Prescriptive Path: The SmartRegs prescriptive path involves a checklist designed as an alternative to the SmartRegs performance path. The checklist relies on trained and certified Rental Energy Efficiency Inspectors (City of Boulder Class “G” license. See city-certified G License inspectors ). To meet the requirements, each unit must achieve 100 points on the checklist. See the Prescriptive Pathway Checklist.
See the the SmartRegs Energy Handbook for complete compliance details, including:
- compliance exceptions
- compliance application
