NYStretch Development and Historical Documents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Historical documents related to the development of NYStretch include:

*Note: Certain historical documents refer to the NYStretch Energy Code with “2018” or “2019” in their titles.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.
