The NYSECC will reflect the NYSECC’s anticipated adoption of the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code that is published by the International Code Counsel. In addition, this legislation incorporates the latest version of the New York Stretch Code – Energy as required by Local Law 32 for the year 2018.
