DOWNLOAD a free copy of the 2003 Michigan Uniform Energy Code.
In 2002, the Department of Labor & Economic Growth established a committee to review and update Michigan's Uniform Energy Code. After review and promulgation of the code, the Ingham County Circuit Court issued an injunction to halt the February 28, 2005, effective date of the rules. Therefore, the rules have been pending litigation since that time. On October 24, 2008, this matter was before the court with a decision following to dismiss the complaint and dissolve the injunction; thereby making the rules effective immediately.
Therefore, every unit of government enforcing the single state construction code must apply the 2003 Michigan Uniform Energy Code (MUEC) to newly issued permits.
The 2003 MUEC was distributed prior to the anticipated effective date of the rules. However, given the length of time that has passed, the bureau is placing these rules on the web site. To access the document and download a free copy visit: 2003 MICHIGAN UNIFORM ENERGY CODE.
