ADVOCACY UPDATES


Comment on the Residential Energy Code Changes by Friday! 
We are in the last week for you to provide input on Washington State’s proposed residential energy code—the public comment deadline will close on Friday, September 27. This is the last chance to influence the energy code before 2023, so support now is vital. Information about the proposed code changes and how you can engage can be found on the Shift Zero Roadmap to ZNE Code task force webpage.
