Park City aspires to be net-zero carbon as a community by 2030, running on 100% renewable energy. As of 2016, buildings accounted for 60 percent of our carbon emissions, well above the national average. There benefits of net-zero homes are many.

To urge the industry forward, Park City plans to incentivize building projects that are designed and built to the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), incorporating Net-zero provisions.  

New Building Institute’s Building Decarbonization Code is a helpful resource (LINK).

Park City accepts All-Electric and Mixed-Fuel Net Zero projects.
