On April 18th, 2019 New York City Council passed the Climate Mobilization Act that included the ambitious carbon emissions limits for existing buildings (Intro 1253). This Act also included a revision to the Letter Grade Law LL95. The revision updates the Energy Star Scores associated with each letter grade. The new letter grade assignments are below.
Local Law 95 will require all buildings in NYC over 25,000sf to publicly post their letter grade annually beginning in 2020. The first letter grades will be based on the 2019 calendar year Energy Star Scores that are submitted to the DOB by May 1, 2020 and every year thereafter. Buildings that are not eligible for a score will receive an “N” and may be required to post the building Energy Use Intensity (EUI).
