Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance - Upcoming Workshops on June 12th

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Do you need help complying with the San Francisco Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance? April 1st was the deadline to benchmark any building larger than 25,000 square feet. To help you with the process of benchmarking your building, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is hosting a workshop on Tuesday, June 12th.

Benchmarking Energy Use in Commercial Buildings
June 12, 2012 8:30 am - 12:30pm
PG&E’s Pacific Energy Center, 851 Howard Street, San Francisco CA 94103 

California law (AB 1103) will soon require the disclosure of an energy performance benchmarking score prior to selling, refinancing or leasing certain whole buildings. Learn how to benchmark your building's energy performance with the help of PG&E's Automated Benchmarking Service - a free, easy-to-use service that automatically sends your commercial building's energy use information to the EPA's ENERGY STAR(R) Portfolio Manager every month. This class will include a hands-on benchmarking exercise using portable Wi-Fi hotspots so that attendees can evaluate an actual building from start to finish and see the ENERGY STAR score.

You’ve Benchmarked Your Building: What’s Next?
June 12, 2012 1:00 pm - 4:30pm
PG&E’s Pacific Energy Center, 851 Howard Street, San Francisco CA 94103 

Your building's benchmarking score is just the beginning. 

This course explores how to set targets for improvement: estimating the actual amount of energy savings needed to reach a higher score; which low/no-cost or capital upgrades might produce various magnitudes of savings; which utility incentive programs could help identify or finance those improvements; etc. It's not about what your building's score is today -- it's about what you want that score to be and how to get it there!
