Nevada Building Energy Codes

Nevada's statewide energy code for new residential and commercial buildings is based on the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).  In March 2014 the state adopted the 2012 IECC which becomes effect July 2015. Jurisdictions in southern Nevada - including  Clark County and Henderson,  - have adopted the 2012 Southern Nevada Energy Code, which is based on the 2012 IECC with local amendments; this code came into effect on July 1, 2014. The remaining Southern Nevada communities have adopted the 2009 IECC as has the communities in Northern Nevada..  Based on Census data of September 2014 over 45% of all construction in the state occurs in communities who have adopted the 2012 IECC.
