First Compliance Deadline for New Energy and Water Building Performance Ordinance - May 2019

CIP Vendor Fair Presentation
In December 2018, the City of San José voted to adopt the Energy and Water Building Performance Ordinance. This ordinance will help the City reach Climate Smart San José's greenhouse gas emission reduction and water conservation goals by encouraging efficiency in large commercial and multifamily buildings.

The ordinance requires commercial and multi-family buildings 20,000 square feet and over to track their yearly whole building energy and water usage data with the EPA platform ENERGYSTAR Portfolio Manager® and share this data with the City. The City will publish a subset of summary data to support market transparency and recognize high-performing buildings across San José. The first reporting deadline for buildings 50,000 square feet and over is May 1, 2019. The first reporting deadline for buildings 20,000 square feet and over is May 1, 2020.

Visit the Energy and Water Building Performance Ordinance page for more information about the ordinance, its requirements, education and resources for compliance.
