SUMMARY

 

This item entails adoption of an Ordinance establishing Reach Codes for the City of Hayward, introduced on March 3, 2020, by Council Member Mendall. 

 

The proposed Reach Codes would modify Part 6 (California Energy Code) and Part 11 (California Green Building Standards Code) of the California Building Standards Code (Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations).  The proposed Reach Codes would be added to Chapter 9, Article 1 of the Hayward Municipal Code.  Reach Codes can address the electrification of buildings and vehicles at the time of construction of new buildings.  Upon adoption of the Ordinance, the California Green Building Standards Code Reach Code (regarding EV charging) would be effective in 30 days and the California Energy Code Reach Code would become effective upon approval by the California Energy Commission, which is expected to be completed by the end of May 2020.
