SECTION 25487-25498



25487.  Unless the context otherwise requires, the definitions in
this article govern the construction of this chapter.



25488.  "Title 24 Standards" refers to the nonresidential building
standards developed by the commission.



25488.5.  "Building standard" means a building standard as defined
in Section 18909 of the Health and Safety Code which is adopted by
the commission.


25489.  "Lifecycle cost" means an estimate of the total cost of
acquisition, operation, maintenance, and construction of any energy
system within or related to a structure over the design life of the
structure. "Life cycle cost" includes, but is not limited to, the
cost of fuel, materials, machinery, ancillary devices, labor,
service, replacement, and repairs.



25491.  "Governmental agency" means any public agency, including any
agency of the state, each county, city, district, association of
governments, and joint power agency.



25492.  "Structure" means any building which has more than 10,000
square feet of floor area and which has a heating, cooling, water
heating, or lighting system which is designed to provide lighting and
space conditioning more than 1,000 hours per year.




25493.  On or after January 1, 1979, no governmental agency shall
commence construction on any new structure unless the new structure
complies with Title 24 Standards.



25493.5.  On and after January 1, 1980, no governmental agency shall
commence construction on any new structure unless the new structure
complies with all applicable building standards, as defined in
Section 25488.5 and published in the State Building Standards Code.




25494.  Not later than July 31, 1978, the commission shall prepare a
manual outlining a methodology by which governmental agencies and
the general public may at their option compare the lifecycle costs of
various building design alternatives. This manual will provide the
information and procedures necessary to evaluate a building's
lifecycle costs in the microclimate and utility service area where it
is to be built.



25495.  No later than July 31, 1978, the commission shall develop
design guidelines for new construction which include energy
conserving options, including, but not limited to, the use of
daylighting, heating ventilation and air conditioning economizer
cycles, natural ventilation, building envelope solar heat gain
control mechanisms, and alternative energy systems such as solar
energy for space heating and water heating and load management
strategies. These guidelines and the cost analysis done pursuant to
Section 25494 may be considered by government agencies at their
option for ultimate selection of a building design in the competitive
bidding process.



25496.  No later than July 1, 1978, the commission shall develop and
make available to government agencies and the general public to be
utilized at their option lighting standards for existing buildings.
These standards shall address, but not be limited to, task and
general area lighting levels, light switching and control mechanisms,
and lighting energy budgets. The commission may provide advice and
recommendations to the public or any governmental agency as to the
standards.



25498.  In addition to any other requirements applicable to such
structure, no new state-owned structure shall be constructed which is
not equipped with a supplementary solar water heating system, unless
such structure is specifically exempted from this requirement by the
State Architect for reasons of economic or physical infeasibility.
