In May 2008, Idaho enacted HB 422 (the Energy Efficient State Building Act) to reduce the amount of energy consumed by state facilities. To the extent feasible and practical, all major facility projects must be designed, constructed and certified to meet a target of at least 10% to 30% better efficiency than a comparable building on a similar site. A major facility project is defined as those constructed by a state agency or for use by a state agency that are larger than 5,000 gross square feet of conditioned space. Also included in the definition are building renovation projects greater than 5,000 gross square feet with a project cost greater than 50% of the assessed value of the existing building.
This provision has a sunset clause of July 1, 2013.
