LA to Update Existing Energy Disclosure Law

With commercial building energy efficiency increasingly on the table for property owners, tenants and brokers alike, Marika Erdely, Principal of Green EconoME and a regular proud sponsor of AIR events, has provided items of interest to AIRWaves from her Green EconoME Newsletter.

  • L.A. to Update Existing Energy Disclosure Law. The Newsletter reports that The Los Angeles Department of Building Safety has released a draft ordinance that updates the Existing Buildings Energy and Water Efficiency Program for the City of Los Angeles to outline a compliance schedule for annual energy and water consumption benchmarking for privately owned buildings from as small as 20,000 square feet, including commercial, multi-family and even industrial. Buildings will also be required to be audited every five years.
  • California’s Energy Disclosure Law: AB 802, replacement for AB 1103, is still scheduled to be in effect beginning April 2018 with an annual disclosure for commercial and April 2019 for multi-family buildings.
