At the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC) this week, CertainTeed, a leading North American manufacturer of building materials, will be showcasing its solar product line right alongside its exterior offerings, promoting its ability to comply with California’s updated Title 24 solar mandate, which takes effect in 2020. Title 24 standards in California are designed to ensure new and existing buildings achieve energy efficiency and preserve indoor environmental quality.
“With the upcoming changes to California Title 24, and other state and local governments eyeing adoption of similar building codes in the coming years, PCBC is the perfect opportunity to show builders some of the CertainTeed products that are helping drive a more sustainable future,” said Matt Gibson, vice president, corporate marketing. “We continue to focus on occupant comfort as well as energy efficiency, and our efforts towards product development, like our innovative solar solutions, speak to that.”
