New York City Cool Roof Ordinance

An ordinance in force as of January 2012 that requires cool roofs on new and replacement low-sloped roofs.  Roofs must have a minimum initial reflectance of 0.7 and initial thermal emittance of 0.75 or an SRI of 78.  A number of specific roof conditions are included, which makes this a good model for other cities to build from.
