We Need Your Feedback! - Mandate and Schedule for Zero Net Energy in all Public Buildings

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Please take a moment to review California State Assembly Bill (AB) 2679 that establishes a mandate and schedule for Zero Net Energy in all public buildings by clicking here.

In the past, BOMA California has not taken positions on such measures that apply solely to the state--whereas if it were applied to all private buildings we would--under the theory that the state can create any such requirements on itself, and our companies can choose to do business with them or not.  

However, this measure might have significant cost and/or technological feasibility issues for those companies that interact with state and local governments, and we ask that you please consider this bill from a practical standpoint (i.e, is it technologically feasible). Also, we have been asked to provide information about what this schedule might cost in terms of leased buildings. Is there anyway of ballparking costs for the Assembly’s fiscal committees?

Please email Ken Cleaveland, BOMA San Francisco's Director of Government and Public Affairs, at with your comments.
