NYC Local Law 84 & 33– Energy Benchmarking Compliance
Local Law 84 (LL84), is an annual assessment of qualified buildings energy usage for the year. Any building that is on the Covered Buildings List is required to submit their utility usage for the previous year to the NYCDOB, who in turn, generates a letter grade to ‘benchmark’ a building’s energy performance. Similar to restaurant grades, Local Law 33 mandates that these letter scores be posted publicly, with the intent that buildings would be driven to improve their performance (letter grade) through reduction of their carbon emissions. Not only do LL84/33 drive buildings to operate better for the environment, but in many cases, buildings can use this data to lower operating costs by identifying system inefficiencies
- Buildings with 25,000+ square feet on the Covered Buildings List their benchmarking report to the NYC Department of Buildings by May 1st for the previous calendar year.
- Fines for non-compliance are currently start at $500 per quarter until requirement is satisfied.
