We are pleased to announce that Mark English, AIA, principal of Mark English Architects, has earned credentials as a Certified Energy Plans Examiner. This program is administered by the California Association of Building Energy Consultants (CABEC) to provide an objective demonstration of a person’s technical expertise and application skills for the California Title 24 Energy Standards.
Why is this exciting, you ask? Well, you don’t need CEPE credentials to prepare Title 24 compliance reports, but some incentive programs such as the New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP) from the California Solar Initiative require that the Title 24 report be prepared and signed by a CEPE in order to be considered eligible. To achieve this certification requires a class and a 2-hour exam, administered by CABEC.
