2011

In early 2011, San Francisco adopted the Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance, requiring commercial-property owners to benchmark their buildings’ annual energy use and make that information publicly available. This 18-month grant supports the San Francisco Department of the Environment’s implementation of the city’s new rating and disclosure policy, which drives greater energy savings and strengthens the case for early adoption by other cities.
