SF and Statewide Benchmarking Coordination for AB802

San Francisco Environment has applied for a waiver for buildings that are subject to AB802 and will submit your building benchmark data to the state in August 2018 to comply with statewide AB802 so building owners do not need to submit the benchmark twice.

New template will be available in mid-March.

A recording of the CEA Tool Overview Webinar can be accessed if you would like a tour of the reporting template.
