subch. I of ch. SPS 363 Subchapter I — Purpose and Application
SPS 363.001 SPS 363.001Purpose. This chapter regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy. This chapter provides flexibility to permit the use of innovative approaches and techniques to achieve the effective use of energy. This chapter is not intended to abridge safety, health or environmental requirements contained in other applicable codes.
SPS 363.001 History History: CR 06-120: cr. Register February 2008 No. 626, eff. 3-1-08.
SPS 363.002 SPS 363.002Application.
SPS 363.002(1)(1)Mixed occupancy. Where a building includes both commercial and residential occupancies, each occupancy shall be separately considered and meet the applicable provisions of IECC commercial provisions for commercial occupancies or IECC residential provisions for residential occupancies.
SPS 363.002(2) (2)Exempt buildings and structures. Glazed structures or glazed portions of buildings used for the production of plant life or for maintaining plant life as the primary purpose are exempt from the building thermal envelope provisions of chs. SPS 361 to 366, provided that glazed portions are separated from the remainder of the building by building thermal envelope assemblies complying with this chapter.

SPS 363.0202(1)(1)Additions. This is a department definition for this chapter in addition to the definitions in IECC section C202: “Effective aperture" or “EA" means for windows, the visible light transmittance times the window wall ratio per wall; and for sky lights, the well efficiency times the visible light transmittance times the sky light area times 0.85 divided by the gross exterior roof area.
SPS 363.0202(2) (2)Substitutions. Substitute the following for the corresponding definitions listed in IECC section C202:
SPS 363.0202(2)(a) (a) “Approved” has the meaning given in s. SPS 362.0202 (2) (a).
SPS 363.0202(2)(b) (b) “Daylight responsive control” means a device or system that provides the automatic control of lamps and luminaires located in daylight zone only or a manual control of lamps or luminaires located in daylight zone only in such manner that at least 50% of the lamps are controlled in a reasonably uniform illumination pattern per IECC section C405.2.2.2, with the capability for the lamps to be operated at 100% or 0% of their design lighting capability.
