The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act contained incentives for the states to upgrade their energy codes to more stringent versions, and to strengthen enforcement of the energy codes they actually adopt.  There are also many new “green” building programs and codes in various stages of development and adoption which usually tighten energy requirements even beyond those in the adopted energy codes.



VELUX America Inc. has led the way in terms of code compliance for the skylight industry and today, the vast majority of the VELUX products sold in the United States are ENERGY STAR qualified in all 50 states. ENERGY STAR is typically a reliable path to code compliance for designers, architects and builders and assures a high level of energy performance when skylights are being considered.
