Draft PDS-02, BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-2022 Addendum A-202x, RECs

Proposed Standard BSR/RESNET/ICC 301-2022 Addendum A-202x amends the 2022 edition of Standard 301 to add a new Minimum Rated Feature and correct oversights in ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2022. The new MRF is the ownership status of Renewable Energy Certificates. The new MRF would only have to be determined when a Renewable Energy System is present, the System’s onsite power production is included in the determination of energy ratings and there are Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) associated with the System. If all the conditions apply the ownership status must be documented as “retired, retained ownership, sold/transferred, none associated with system, or Unknown”. The amendment also adds a definition for Renewable Energy Certificate and modifies the definition of Infiltration Volume for clarity and consistency with standard ANSI/RESNET/ICC 380-2022.

(Note: Standard 301-2019 recently became the basis for calculation RESNET HERS® Index ratings so Standard 301-2022 will not take effect for the HERS® soon. Addendum A is intended to ensure Standard 301-2022 is consistent with the standards adopted by the MINHERS® Addendum 65 for the current RESNET HERS® when that transition occurs.)
