NEMA White Paper Set to Enhance Efficiency

Nov. 10, 2016

The paper, NEMA WD ARCP 1-2016 Automatic Receptacle Control to Meet ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and California Title 24, explains the controlled receptacle requirement now appearing in non-residential energy codes.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published a free white paper that discusses new requirements that help decrease energy consumption in commercial buildings.

NEMA WD ARCP 1-2016 Automatic Receptacle Control to Meet ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and California Title 24, explains the controlled receptacle requirement now appearing in non-residential energy codes, as well as a summary of typical application settings.

Standards such as Title 24-2013 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and 2013 require that at least 50% of all receptacles in designated spaces of a building be controllable, meaning they are able to turn themselves off and on automatically as needed.
