Californians: We’re on top of Title 24 v2013. Are you? 

California Title 24 version 2013 is the most ambitious set of energy codes in the U.S. today. After delays, it affects most new construction, tenant improvements, and lighting retrofits begun after August 2014.

  • You must be in compliance with the expanded requirements of earlier versions just to get a building permit. You must have additional inspections and certifications to obtain a permit of occupancy. Not knowing how to handle these new rules could delay your project, inflate its cost, and increase your work dramatically. We can help.
  • You need the proper certifications, which require nearly 100 hours of training for the Acceptance Testing certification (and you must be a certified general electrician, PE to qualify).

Why put yourself through it, when you can hire us for a single project at a fraction of the time and cost of a full time staffer.
Be smart. Do what you do best and call us to handle the hassles for you.

Call now to discuss your project or schedule your Title 24 inspection and certification. 415 987 3352

With energy costs rising, incentives declining or leveling off, and costs increasing, lighting requires more experience to understand and maximize the returns on your energy investments because you can see as well as use it. PowerDown’s principals have a long history of embracing new, more efficient technologies in order to bring its customers the most “bang for the buck.” .  Along with our sister company in Baltimore, MD, we  partner with other quality firms with whatever expertise we need to get the job done right.

If you need help or resources for a lighting project, design consultations, great quotes on premium materials, labor, etc. Give us a call.
