NYStretch Development and Historical Documents
NYStretch was developed with guidance from a 25-member advisory group composed of public and private stakeholders and energy experts. NYSERDA held a public comment period in 2018 seeking feedback on the draft from architects, engineers, building professionals, and local government officials. NYSERDA reviewed and, where necessary, revised the draft document based on those comments.
Historical documents related to the development of NYStretch include:
- Draft NYStretch Energy Code-2019 dated January 2019 [PDF]
- Draft NYStretch Energy Code – 2018*, revision August 16, 2018 [PDF]
- Presentations on the NYStretch Code – Energy 2018 [PDF]
- NYSERDA Responses to Public Comments [PDF]
- 2018 International Energy Conservation Code
- 19-37 Energy Savings and Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of the 2020 NYStretch Energy Code residential Provisions [PDF]
*Note: Certain historical documents refer to the NYStretch Energy Code with “2018” or “2019” in their titles. Going forward, it will be referred to or titled “NYStretch Energy Code-2020” as it will overlay the 2020 ECCC NYS when that energy code is released by New York State Department of State.
