Nonresidential Building Energy Use Disclosure Program

Beginning January 1, 2014, AB 1103 (Saldana, Chapter 533, Statutes 2007) requires a nonresidential building owner or operator throughout the State of California to benchmark a building’s energy use in advance of the sale, lease, financing or refinancing of the entire building. Benchmarkig is the process in which a building’s energy use is compared to the ENERGY STAR standards using the Portfolio Manager website.

    Benchmarking Process:
    1) Property walk through (optional)
    2) Tenant data collection (operations and utility)
    3) Portfolio Manager compilation
    4) Reporting AB1103 & Energy Management
    5) Recommendations for improvement (optional)
