In December 2008, the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors approved a Green Building Ordinance that establishes Green Building certification requirements for most new single-family residences in the incorporated areas in Santa Clara County. The residential component of the ordinance went into effect on January 15, 2009, and the nonresidential component went into effect on January 1, 2011.

More information about requirements and plan submittal is available through the Building Inspection Office.  For more information about certification requirements and the certification process, refer to the GreenPoint Rated and LEED for Homes websites.
