Addenda & FAQ
2020 Criteria Addenda & FAQ will be posted here as these are developed.
Substantial or Moderate Rehab properties in Colorado in Climate Zone 5 may choose to use an alternate path instead of mandatory 2020 Criterion 5.1b. This existing building Colorado alternate energy path is administered by Energy Outreach Colorado ; please refer to the linked requirements.
To demonstrate compliance with this alternate path for Enterprise Green Communities Certification, at Prebuild project teams will upload a confirmation letter to the Enterprise certification portal from EOC showing that the project has appropriately committed to the Colorado alternate path. At Postbuild, project teams will upload a confirmation letter to the Enterprise certification portal from EOC confirming that the project successfully complied.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, in which virtual connectivity, remote schooling, access to tele-medicine and other critical web-based resources is essential, we are expanding the availability of this optional criterion. All projects, regardless of location or construction type, may now choose to pursue Criterion 2.15b for six optional points.
