Pennsylvania’s exemption for legacy projects expired on August 14, 2022, meaning that all building projects must now comply with the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).

To assist code officials, design professionals, energy professionals, and others, PSD has contracted with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to deliver energy code training throughout the Commonwealth.
