Benchmarking AB 802


In 2015, the State of California passed Assembly Bill 802 (AB 802) to provide building owners access to their building energy use data from utilities, and to track consumption in their buildings. AB 802 also fixed several issues related to AB 1103, the previous statute mandating benchmarking.


With some exceptions, all commercial buildings 50K s.f. and larger will have to benchmark and report to the CEC by June 1, 2018, and every year thereafter.


Below are resources that will help you determine if this law applies to your building(s) and how to comply if it does.
