ENERGY STAR California Program Requirements: Single-Family New Homes v3.4 and Multifamily New Construction v1.4 and Revised Implementation Policy for all California Versions

In response to California's more stringent 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, EPA is proposing new versions of the ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction Program Requirements for California: Single-Family New Homes (SFNH) Version 3.4 and Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) Version 1.4. These new versions are intended to ensure that ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments will continue to offer meaningful savings relative to those that are not certified.

In addition, EPA is proposing to revise its policy for determining which version of the program must be used to certify homes and apartments, to be based on a home’s or building’s permit date and the edition of code being enforced by the Authority Having Jurisdiction. The revised policy is contained within the draft program documents.
