California AB 802

California AB 802 Reports were due on June 1st for both commercial and multi-family buildings. 

If your building is over 50,000 square feet you may be required to comply with the AB 802 ordinance.

Preparing the AB 802 Energy Benchmark Report has several benefits:

  • Compliance – it’s the law.  Failure to comply may result in civil penalties.
  • Streamlines the sale, lease or refinancing of the property – Buyers, tenants and lenders have begun to ask for the report or for the building’s ENERGY STAR score prior to closing. 
  • Can lower your energy costs – Energy benchmarking allows you to easily measure and track energy consumption for timely intervention.
  • May result in higher leasing rates and selling prices for buildings with better ENERGY STAR scores.  Energy efficiency is the new “amenity” in today’s market.  In fact, research from several academic sources show that ENERGY STAR Certified buildings command a premium in both lease rates and selling prices.

BE PREPARED, don’t let the failure to comply with AB 802 create an issue at closing. Comply with AB 802 and start getting the benefits of energy benchmarking
