Arizona does not have a mandatory statewide energy code. Currently, based on research conducted by the Phoenix Chapter’s Technical Committee earlier this year, only half of Arizona’s counties have adopted an energy code and more than 40% of the cities researched by the committee (a total of 49) indicated they did not adopt an energy code.
