BENCHMARKING UPDATE – 2018 Due Date Extension Announced for December

The due date for Benchmarking compliance for 2017 calendar year data is now extended to December 31, 2018

Due to technical difficulties, the Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability has “temporarily suspended compliance” with Local Law 84, extending this year’s due date to December 31st, 2018. You can read the Service Notice announcing the change here.

As a reminder, this due date only applies to buildings who were previously covered under LL84 rules (50,000 sq. ft and up, with few additional properties). Mid-sized buildings will have to submit before February 2019. That said, this current technical delay may cause a delay for mid-size data submission, as well.

We’ve seen a lot of Benchmarking changes this year, so we’ve rounded up our most comprehensive Benchmarking posts for you to review:

  • Do you know if your building is required to submit Benchmarking? Read our post on how to determine whether or not you’re impacted by Local Law 84.
  • Do you have a mid-sized building that will be required to submit in the future? Read our post on the latest news for proposed due dates from the DOB
Bottom line:
If you typically submit annual Benchmarking reports, you now have an extension through December 31st of this year to submit your 2017 data. If you have mid-sized buildings (25,000 – 49,999 sq. ft.) , you will have to submit 2017 Benchmarking data in the future, though likely in 2019.
