Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance Second Deadline Approaches – SF Department of the Environment Prepares to Post Compliance Data

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The San Francisco Department of Environment is required to post online those buildings that have complied with benchmarking requirement in the Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance.  The Department of Environment will post this information on March 15, 2012.  A list of properties that have not complied will be posted as well. 

To ensure that your properties are recognized for leadership in energy management, please provide the Department of Environment with a current list of non-residential properties associated with your firm (ownership, management, primary tenant, or other).  Staff members at the Department of the Environment are happy to crosscheck the information you provide against the list of properties that have complied, as well as the list of properties subject to the ordinance, and report back to you promptly. 

Please send a spreadsheet listing the properties your portfolio to:

Property lists should include:
  • Property address and name (if different from address);
  • Parcel number (if readily available).
If the property was bought during or after the reporting period - calendar year 2010 - then note the month of the transaction. (Such transactions may leave the current owner unable to obtain energy use data.) 

Property lists received by March 9, 2012 will be checked by Department staff prior to the publication of a map that indicates compliance.  Lastly, all Annual Energy Benchmark Reports due in 2011 will remain confidential.

On April 1, 2012, Annual Energy Benchmark Summary Reports are due for properties 25,000 square feet and larger. For facilities 50,000 square feet and larger, this will be the second year that the facilities are benchmarked, and the reported information will be available to the public this summer.
