Green Building Code

The Program

The Town of Telluride adopted Ordinance Number 1372 (PDF), requiring all commercial, residential new construction, additions, and remodels to comply with energy and green building regulations. The New Energy / Green Building Code addresses increased energy and water efficiency measures while offsetting excessive energy usage associated with development.

The 20% green building administrative fee added to a building permit and any fees collected to offset TEMP (Telluride Energy Mitigation Program) are collected by the Town, placed into a restricted fund, and utilized for energy efficiency and alternative energy-related Town projects.
