Good Afternoon,

On behalf of the California Energy Commission, we are inviting you to an official webinar on May 29th to learn more about the Building Energy Benchmarking Program, also known as "AB 802."

In October
of 2015, the State of California passed Assembly Bill 802, directing the California Energy Commission to establish the Building Energy Benchmarking Program. The Program requires owners of buildings larger than 50,000 square feet with either no residential utility accounts or 17 or more residential utility accounts to benchmark and disclose their buildings' energy performance through ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. The purpose of the program is to help building owners better understand their energy consumption through standardized energy use metrics that enable smarter and more cost-effective improvements in building energy use.

Important dates include:

June 1, 2018: Reporting deadline for buildings with no residential utility accounts
June 1, 2019: Reporting deadline for buildings with 17 or more utility accounts

Upcoming Webinar: 

May 29, 2018 | 10-11am
