In a victory for HBA members, the South Carolina energy code has been locked in legislatively with the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code.  The 2012 IECC will not be adopted in South Carolina this year as it will be in many other states.

“This is a significant victory for our members and an example of the excellent work our government affairs team is doing for us in Columbia,” Rick Quinn, President of the HBA of Greenville, said.  “Our members will save significantly on construction costs while still building a highly efficient house that is compliant with the 2009 IECC.”
