The Building Energy Use Disclosure and Public Benchmarking Program, mandated under Assembly Bill 802, requires most non-residential buildings above 50,000 gross square feet of floor area and multi-family buildings over 50,000 gross square feet with 17 or more utility accounts, to submit annual Energy Benchmark Reports to the California Energy Commission. Tierra works with property owners and managers as well as government agencies to prepare and submit these Energy Benchmark Reports by the deadline of June 1st.
The cities of San Francisco, Berkeley, and Los Angeles have local benchmarking and public disclosure programs whose requirements exceed those of this state program. Please refer to our city specific benchmarking pages for assistance complying with these local programs.
*Tierra stays current on issues related to AB 802, however the program changes periodically and may be interpreted differently based on your location. We encourage you to explore California Energy Commission's regulation on implementing AB 802 at this link, or at the California Energy Commission's main program page at this link.
