FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky is getting a $1 million grant to conduct a study on energy code compliance in the state.

The money is coming from the U.S. Department of Energy, and the study will be conducted by the Kentucky Department for Energy Development; the Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction; and the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.

A release from the state says the goal of the study is to move the state toward full energy code compliance by 2017.

The three-year project will occur in three phases. The first phase will include a survey of newly built homes to measure their compliance. The next phase provides a plan for improvement in implementing energy codes, and the final phase includes a follow-up survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the code improvement campaign.
