Solutions for Your Title 24 Dilemma
You are a CA business owner and you need to expand your building space. When you go to pull the proper permits or discuss your plans with an engineer, the first question they are going to ask you is, “Have you accounted for the new Title 24 requirements?” What will you say?
Title 24 Confusion
If your answer is, “What new requirements,” you are not alone. Title 24 just went into effect last July. Since that time, business owners have been wringing their hands to try to figure out the best, most cost effective ways to implement these new standards.
Particularly since Title 24 covers the gamut from HVAC improvements and lighting to energy efficient window and solar panel installation. The law states that any new construction, upgrades, or renovations will be required to adhere to the new Title 24 standards.
These kinds of changes can add up to a whole lot of money too. What you need is help demystifying this new law and help making these changes in a compliant yet affordable way.
Just for lighting improvements alone, the law could mean tens of thousands of dollars for large commercial buildings. Title 24 requires any standing building with more than 40 ballasts or where more than 10% of the lighting is affected by Title 24 to be retrofitted to meet the new energy efficiency standards.
Trying to pour over all of the 260+ pages of these new standards can be overwhelming for anyone. Not to mention the fact that no two buildings are exactly the same. Deciding which improvements to make and developing a strategy for implementation often requires outside help.
The solution to your Title 24 dilemma is to hire a company that not only is thoroughly aware of the new requirements but can also help you devise cost saving strategies for implementing one of the most expensive changes; the lighting. That’s where Energy Efficient Services comes in.
They have successfully helped other business owners solve this dilemma without breaking the bank and can help you too. Even though they specialize in LED lighting installation, they work hand in hand with engineers and architects to develop a set of drawings for your total Title 24 implementation.
They then work with the building department to help get your plan through review. Once review is complete and approved, they get to work fully integrating lighting controls that work in sync with your building’s HVAC, automatic blinds, plug load, card reader systems, and more. Finally they install it for you, complete from soup to nuts.
Success with Title 24 Implementation
Just recently, they were called in to help the Prescott Hotel in San Francisco, CA create and implement their Title 24 strategy. The 197 guest room hotel remodel required new lighting systems, HVAC specifications, and control systems in order to get up to code.
EES worked with local utilities companies and the local Energy Commission to ensure complete compliance. When it was all said and done, the Prescott Hotel passed inspection with flying colors while staying under budget thanks to the work of EES.
What sets EES apart from all of their competitors is their hands-on approach throughout the entire process. Their services cover pre-construction through final inspection, including:
- Commercial LED Lighting

While the goal of the latest energy efficiency standards is to help reduce the carbon footprint of businesses operating in California, Energy Efficient Services’ goal is to help you make these changes cost effectively. Their ability to find the savings without sacrificing efficiency and quality is what makes them the most trusted source for implementing Title 24.
