Summary

The bill requires the Colorado energy office (office) to identify for
adoption 3 sets of model code language:
  • Model electric and solar ready code language;
  • Model low energy and carbon code language; and
  • Model green code language.
On or before January 1, 2025, municipalities, counties, the office
of the state architect, the division of housing, and the division of fire
prevention and control shall adopt and enforce an energy code that
achieves equivalent or better energy performance than the 2021
international energy conservation code and the model electric and solar
ready code language identified for adoption by the office.

of the state architect, the division of housing, and the division of fire
prevention and control shall adopt and enforce an energy code that
achieves equivalent or better energy and carbon emissions performance
than the model low energy and carbon code language identified for
adoption by the office.
In the event of a conflict between the 2021 international energy
conservation code, the 2024 international energy conservation code, or
any of these 3 sets of model code language and either the Colorado
plumbing code or the national electric code, the Colorado plumbing code
or the national electric code prevails.
The bill creates 2 primary grant programs:
  • The building electrification for public buildings grant
program to provide grants to local governments, school
districts, state agencies, and special districts for the
installation of high-efficiency electric heating equipment;
and
  • The high-efficiency electric heating and appliances grant
program to provide grants to local governments, utilities,
nonprofit organizations, and housing developers for the
installation of high-efficiency electric heating equipment in
multiple structures within a neighborhood.
The bill establishes the clean air building investments fund, a
continuously appropriated cash fund, to fund the creation,
implementation, and administration of both of these grant programs.
The bill also requires the following transfers from the general
fund:
  • $3 million to the energy fund created for the Colorado
energy office to issue grants and provide training related to
the 2021 international energy conservation code, electric
and solar ready codes, and low energy and carbon codes;
  • $10 million to the clean air building investments fund for
the creation, implementation, and administration of the
building electrification for public buildings grant program;
and
  • $12 million to the clean air building investments fund for
the creation, implementation, and administration of the
high-efficiency electric heating and appliances grant
program.
