Depending upon the size of a building, California AB 802 may require a building owner to benchmark the building energy use using ENERGY STAR®Portfolio Manager and to disclose the energy use results of the building(s).
It is the responsibility of the building owner to complete the building benchmarking.
The new regirements require building owners to report building characteristic information and energy use data to the California Energy Commission beginning June 1, 2018 for buildings with no residential utility accounts, and in 2019 for buildings with 17 or more residential utility accounts.
Energy Star Portfolio Manager
The Energy Star Portfolio Manager is the Environmental Protection Agency’s online energy management and tracking tool that enables you to benchmark, measures, and track the energy and water use of any building over time and to compare your building to similar buildings. Benchmarking also provides a building score.
For example, a score of 50 is average, a score of 25 means your building is only more efficient than 25 percent of your peers, and a score of 75 or greater means your facility is a top performer.
