SEED Process and Requirements
There are several steps in the SEED process.
1. Determine if the project is subject to SEED
The construction or renovation of a state facility that has absolutely no energy using systems is not subject to SEED. All other projects must comply with SEED.
2. Determine if the project is a Class 1 or Class 2 building
There are different procedures for Class 1 versus Class 2 buildings.
In general, buildings with 10,000 or more square feet are Class 1 buildings. Buildings smaller than 10,000 square feet are Class 2. For the complete definition of Class 1 and Class 2 buildings, see the SEED Guidelines. If you are unsure of the building class, please contact the Department of Energy (Energy) SEED staff.
3. Notify Energy
The sooner Energy's involvement begins, the more opportunity there is for saving energy and money.
