We’ve written a few blog posts about this change, but it’s that important. Starting next year, buildings over 25,000 sq. ft. will be required to submit energy and water consumption to the city annually, first due on May 1, 2018. Failure to comply can result in fines of up to $2,000 per year.
To get a better idea of what owners and managers need to comply with this change, the Benchmarking Help Center (BHC) is conducting an impact survey. According to the BHC, they’re working with 3×3 design to, “to give owners and managers a chance to tell us about their awareness of the law, their response to wordings, their preferred methods of learning, and the best communication channels we can use to reach them.”
You can give BHC your opinions by taking the Benchmarking Survey, linked here.
Any questions regarding the Survey can be sent directly to the BHC at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 212-566-5584.
