AB 802 Exemptions and Exceptions (All in one place)

Exemptions

Exemptions for Building Owners. A building owner is exempt from the requirements of section 1683 (Benchmarking and Public Disclosure) for a building meeting any of these conditions:

  1. The building did not have a certificate of occupancy during the 12-month reporting period
  2. T(he building is scheduled to be demolished within one year of the reporting data
  3. The building was benchmarked pursuant to a local program listed on the Energy Commission website

Exceptions

If the building has more than half of the gross floor area used for scientific experiments requiring a controlled environment or industrial purposes, the report is not required.

The ordinance applies to "buildings" not properties. An owner of a separately-metered, multi-building property such as a Shopping Center, Office Park, or Public Storage Facility, where the aggregate square footage is greater than 50,000 square feet, does not need to comply IF NO ONE BUILDING exceeds 50,000 square feet. (However, if the sum of the buildings sharing a common meter (with no submeter) exceeds 50,000 square feet, then AB 802 applies.
