Deadline Fast Approaching for Submission of New York City Building Energy Use Benchmarking Data
By David J. Freeman & Jesse Hiney
The deadline for submission of energy benchmarking data for most large buildings in New York City is just around the corner. The due date, May 1, 2011, was established by Local Law 84 when it was enacted in 2009 as a component of New York Citys Greener, Greater Buildings Plan.
Benchmarking requirements apply to (i) any building that exceeds 50,000 gross square feet, (ii) two or more existing buildings on the same tax lot that together exceed 100,000 gross square feet, and (iii) two or more buildings held as condominiums that are governed by the same board of managers and together exceed 100,000 gross square feet.
