    The Building Code Assistance Project (BCAP) wants you to know that you have a right to an energy efficient home. Energy codes are minimum requirements for the design and construction of new and renovated residential and commercial buildings. They ensure your home meets minimum energy efficiency standards. Energy codes reduce energy demand, save consumers money, improve comfort, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For more information click here.
