Energy Benchmarking for South Bay Cities: Did You Know?
Under the California Energy Benchmarking Program (AB802), property owners are required to submit benchmarking reports of buildings over 50,000 square feet, as well as campuses of buildings with over 50,000 square feet combined, by June 1 of each year. SBCCOG works with cities to satisfy these requirements by benchmarking their properties in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, an online tool used to track and assess energy, water and waste consumption. Check out the Energy Star Benchmarking Tools. More information on benchmarking can be found through SoCalGas: Benefits of Benchmarking & Guide to Benchmarking Your Building.
