If you own or manage a building in New York City that is 50,000 square feet or larger, it is likely that you will need to comply with Local Law 87: Energy Audits and Retro-Commissioning of Base Building Systems (LL87). The law requires energy audits, retrocommissioning and “Energy Efficiency Reports” every 10 years for the City’s biggest buildings. The provisions of the LL87 will analyze cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades and re-tune systems in existing buildings, including HVAC, electrical and lighting, domestic hot water, building envelope and conveying systems. Failure to comply with the law subjects property owners to fines of $3,000 the first year and $5,000 for each subsequent year. Each building has been assigned a due date and the first compliance deadlines are in 2013. LL87 is an important step toward making New York City as energy efficient as possible.
As an approved speaker through the Urban Green Speaker’s Bureau, Steven Winter Associates routinely conducts compliance education for building owners and managers.
