The law requires that anytime you finance, sell, or lease a whole building, you are required to run the ENERGY STAR numbers and provide that information to the other party in the transaction as well as the Energy Commission.
Again, the effective date of the regulations is now January 1, 2014, for buildings more than 10,000 square feet and up.
In addition to providing information to the counterparties of the transaction there are also reporting requirements you must follow to provide information to the Energy Commission. The required documentation and reports should be printed from each building’s ENERGY STAR account and submitted to authorized counterparties of the transaction
CBPA staff and experts from member companies are working with the Energy Commission staff to provide resources to help you comply with this new law. Here are several items you can find already online:
In July 2013, EPA will released the upgraded Portfolio Manager tool, providing users with a new interface, streamlined functionality, and improved usability. To get you up to speed on the new tool, they are offering a number of trainings, as well as ‘office hours,’ during the month of July.
