The California Lighting Technology Center’s Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution
Guide assists builders and lighting industry professionals in navigating the nonresidential lighting and
electrical power distribution portions of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6
or Energy Code). The 2019 iteration of the Energy Code took effect on January 1, 2020.
Significant changes in the 2019 Energy Code address ventilation, HVAC, demand response and lighting.
Notably, the 2019 Energy Code now includes requirements for healthcare facilities (Occupancy Group I-2),
although there are many exceptions for this building type. Major changes to the nonresidential
lighting portion of the Energy Code include:
• Lighting Power Allowances
• Power Adjustment Factors
• Additions, Alterations & Repairs
Autani’s innovative EnergyCenter energy management solution provides you with a comprehensive,
budget-friendly means to meet Title 24 standards for lighting & HVAC control. Autani systems are
already compliant with the lighting and HVAC control requirements in the 2019 revision of Title 24. In
