Harvest Thermal Earns Inclusion in CEC Title 24 Compliance Software

–News Direct–

The electronic rulebook of Title 24 compliance for energy now includes Harvest Thermals smart thermal battery solution as an efficiency option. The California energy code for new construction and major remodels is becoming increasingly challenging to meet. Architects, homebuilders and remodelers need more cost-effective solutions to include in their projects.

Harvest Thermal offers project developers a climate-friendly and cost-effective tool to meet code requirements. Its unique thermal battery solution uses a single heat pump for both heating and hot water. The smart Harvest Pod leverages cheap, clean electricity to store heat at midday while releasing it to the home whenever needed. Smart controls optimize for homeowner comfort while delivering up to 45% lower energy costs and 90% carbon reductions compared to gas.

Harvest Thermals inclusion in the CEC Title 24 database is very significant for architects, homebuilders and remodelers, said Pierre Delforge, Head of Product and Operations at Harvest Thermal. They will see outsized benefits with significantly lower EDR scores, lowering their costs and improving the performance of their buildings.

Building plans submitted for permitting must achieve scores at or below the Energy Design Rating (EDR) compliance threshold as calculated by the CBECC-Res compliance software. Plans that include Harvest Thermal get extra credit, lowering both Efficiency and Total EDR scores, and helping to avoid other more costly measures.

Harvest Thermal also qualifies for the new California Electric Homes Program (CalEHP) for all-electric new construction, bringing more value to homebuilders projects. The technology fits into recognizable floorplans, enabling developers to seamlessly integrate Harvest into their designs.

For more information on how to incorporate Harvest Thermal into the CBECC-Res database as a combined heat and hot water system see the instructions in this presentation.

Harvest Thermal is redesigning home heating, cooling and hot water for the planet. Its market-leading thermal battery system cuts carbon emissions by 90% from home heating and hot water compared to gas and 50% compared to heat pumps without storage. The cloud-connected Harvest Pod leverages machine learning software, sensors, and controls to reduce carbon emissions and save on monthly heating bills. It also supports a cleaner, cheaper, and more resilient grid. Founded in 2019, Harvest Thermal has received support from the National Science Foundation, the California Energy Commission, Peninsula Clean Energy, and leading private investors.

In 2023, Harvest Thermal was named to Fast Companys Most Innovative Companies list; awarded NREL Industry Growth Forums Peoples Choice Award; and won a Silver Edison Award for Sustainable Design in the category of Consumer Solutions.
