San Franciso Benchmarking Ordinance Now Includes Multi-family Buildings

Published on January 13, 2020 by Charles Orr to in San Francisco ECBO,

San Francisco’s Existing Commercial Building Ordinance is now the Existing Building Ordinance.

Benchmarking for multi-family buildings 50,000 square feet or more was due July 1st, 2019 and then on April 1st every year thereafter. Condominium Associations with 50,000 square feet or more must comply.

However, multi-family buildings are not required to have an energy audit.

This brings the ordinance in line with AB 802 for multi-family buildings and benchmarks submitted to the city satisfy the AB 802 requirement.
