No-Cost Builder Energy Code Training (BECT)

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has contracted with ConSol, a third party energy efficiency implementation specialist, to implement the Builder Energy Code Training (BECT) Program which provides free, in-depth codes and compliance education to help builders in PG&E and SCE Territory understand California's rigorous 2013 Title 24 Energy Code. Since 1995 this dynamic program has helped the building industry keep up with changes in the energy codes. The program improves compliance with Title 24 through classroom, on-site and Webinar trainings, which focuses on the most comprehensive and cost-effective ways to bring a home up to and above the CA Energy Code requirements.
