✅Utility benchmarking is a city-mandated government program that applies to certain cities in the United States.
Those cities include Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Cambridge, and many more.
This program was created to help city officials manage and report energy consumption by the largest users in their city.
By comparing buildings’ energy usage to other similar buildings in the surrounding area, the data can be used to create policies which reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the residents of these cities.
The program applies to buildings of a certain size, which is based on square footage and number of units.
Buildings that fall within the size criteria are legally obligated to submit their annual electric, gas, water, sewer, and other energy usage and costs to the federal government via the EPA portfolio management system.
Each year, the minimum size required to report decreases, so smaller and smaller buildings have to file.
If businesses that are mandated by building size to submit do not, they could face fines of up to $10,000.
Much like filing taxes, it is also critical that the submission happens by the deadline.
UtilityModule tracks your data every single month and submits that data into the EPA Portfolio Manager, so meeting your benchmarking requirements is a breeze.
