Comply with NYC Energy Law 84 (Benchmarking)

Beginning May 2018, buildings exceeding 25,000 square feet must comply with New York City’s Benchmarking Law (Local Law 84).  Benchmarking is the process of evaluating energy and water efficiency in buildings. By measuring, tracking, and comparing energy and water consumption using standard metrics, building owners can assess the relative efficiency of their buildings compared to other similar buildings.

For midsize buildings Benchmarking for the first time in 2018, violations will not yet be issued following the May 1st filing deadline. However, violations and fines of $500 for non-compliance will likely be going into effect later this year, so it is best to get the filing done as soon as possible!
