Newly Approved MINHERS Addendum 65f & ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2022 Add A-2022

Aug 4, 2022

NEW APPROVED STANDARDS ADDENDA:

MINHERS Addendum 65f, Third Party EEP HERS Ratings & RECs Ownership Status
Addendum 65f amends the MINHERS to: (1) address how HERS Ratings used by Third Party Energy Efficiency Programs will be recognized by and reported to the RESNET Registry; (2) add a definition for Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and add the ownership status of RECs to the Minimum Rated Features (MRF), and; (3) remove a now redundant exception that expanded the Scope of the HERS to dwelling units in hi-rise multifamily buildings. The Scope for Standard 301-2019, which is now the basis for the RESNET HERS, includes dwelling units and sleeping units in hi-rise multifamily buildings. The interim version of Addendum 65, (65i), that is currently mandatory will be replaced by the final version, Addendum 65f, on January 1, 2023.

 

ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2022 Addendum A-2022, Renewable Energy Certificates
Addendum A-2022 is the Standard 301-2022 parallel amendment to the portion of MINHERS Addendum 65f that addresses Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Where Addendum 65f defines RECs and makes them a Minimum Rated Feature for the current, Standard 301-2019 based RESNET HERS, ANSI/RESNET/ICC 301-2022 Addendum A-2022 will establish the same requirements for the 2022 edition of Standard 301. (Note: Standard 301-2019 became the basis for the RESNET HERS Index rating on January 1, 2022. Standard 301-2022 is not expected to replace Standard 301-2019 in the near future.)
