NC Energy Code Resources

The NC 2012 Energy Code, adopted from the 2009 IECC, was introduced to NC in March of 2012. This new code has proven to be good for NC’s economy and offer benefits to NC consumers and business owners as well as increase the energy efficiency of all residential and commercial buildings constructed in the state. These changes will have an impact not only on builders and subcontractors, but also on building suppliers, architects, engineers, and home energy raters.
