Interpretation No. 301-2014-017 Off-site Chiller:

RESNET Standard Development Committee 300 issued the interpretation of Standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2014 to clarify when off-site energy used for the benefit on homes must be considered in Energy Ratings. The interpretation request centered on a community aquifer water chiller system that serves ground source heat pumps for individual homes. The interpretation issued by the SDC is intended to provide guidance for this case and others where off-site energy use should be considered in rating a home.
