Clark County - Energy Conservation Code

March 06, 2017


In September 2010, Clark County adopted Ordinance 3897, implementing the Southern Nevada version of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code for both residential and commercial buildings located within Clark County. The code was developed by the Southern Nevada Building Officials' International Energy Conservation Committee, comprised of seven municipalities throughout Nevada (including Clark County, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, Pahrump, and Mesquite) as well as the Clark County and industry representatives.

The Energy Conservation Code does not apply to government buildings or buildings used in utility generation or distribution. The most recent versions of all codes are available on the program web site listed above.
