7Efficiency Code for Building Construction adopted and amended
8pursuant to s. 553.901.
9     Section 105.  Section 553.9061, Florida Statutes, is
10created to read:
11     553.9061  Scheduled increases in thermal efficiency
12standards.--
13     (1)  The purpose of this section is to establish a schedule
14of increases in the energy performance of buildings subject to
15the Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building Construction.
16The Florida Building Commission shall:
17     (a)  Include the necessary provisions by the 2010 edition
18of the Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building Construction
19to increase the energy performance of new buildings by at least
2020 percent as compared to the energy efficiency provisions of
21the 2007 Florida Building Code adopted October 31, 2007.
22     (b)  Increase energy efficiency requirements by the 2013
23edition of the Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building
24Construction by at least 30 percent as compared to the energy
25efficiency provisions of the 2007 Florida Building Code adopted
26October 31, 2007.
27     (c)  Increase energy efficiency requirements by the 2016
28edition of the Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building
29Construction by at least 40 percent as compared to the energy
30efficiency provisions of the 2007 Florida Building Code adopted
31October 31, 2007.
32     (d)  Increase energy efficiency requirements by the 2019
33edition of the Florida Energy Efficiency Code for Building
34Construction by at least 50 percent as compared to the energy
35efficiency provisions of the 2007 Florida Building Code adopted
36October 31, 2007.
37     (2)  The Florida Building Commission shall identify within
38code support and compliance documentation the specific building

41performance options and elements include, but are not limited
42to:
43     (a)  Solar water heating.
44     (b)  Energy-efficient appliances.
45     (c)  Energy-efficient windows, doors, and skylights.
46     (d)  Low solar-absorption roofs, also known as "cool
47roofs."
48     (e)  Enhanced ceiling and wall insulation.
49     (f)  Reduced-leak duct systems.
50     (g)  Programmable thermostats.
51     (h)  Energy-efficient lighting systems.
52     (3)  The Florida Building Commission shall, prior to
53implementing the goals established in subsection (1), adopt by
54rule and implement a cost-effectiveness test for proposed
55increases in energy efficiency. The cost-effectiveness test
56shall measure cost-effectiveness and shall ensure that energy
57efficiency increases result in a positive net financial impact.
