Summary: We will use a simple review of the significant changes in Title 24 2013 as a starting point to discuss the significant changes to the mandatory design requirements in the Title 24 2016 version of the code. This will cover the changes in sections 130.1 (a) through (e), as well as changes to the requirements for retrofit, remodels, lighting power density, and power adjustment factors.
