We recently notified you of new Mandatory Nonresidential Building Energy Performance Disclosures that were to be implemented by the California Energy Commission on July 1, 2013, but were suspended until September 1, 2013. The Commission has again suspended the implementation of these regulations due to technical issues following an upgrade to the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. The regulations will now be implemented on January 1, 2014.
The regulations require owners of nonresidential buildings to disclose building energy performance data each time a building is sold, leased to a single tenant, or financed.
Compliance with the regulations will be required on and after January 1, 2014, for all nonresidential buildings over 10,000 square feet, and on and after July 1, 2014 for all nonresidential buildings with at least 5,000 square feet.
