Local Law 84: Benchmarking Energy & Water Use

New York City Local Law 84 requires buildings over 50,000 square feet to benchmark their energy and water use by May 1 each year. FS Energy will ensure your building is compliant by inputting the data into the EPA’s Portfolio Manager tool.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which buildings must comply with LL84?
The law requires compliance from buildings exceeding 50,000 gross square feet, or two or more buildings that together exceed 100,000 square feet and share a tax lot or are held by the same condominium ownership.

What is the data used for?
The data is used by New York City to track and assess the energy and water use of buildings relative to similar buildings. Benchmarking helps building owners become more aware of their energy costs, consumption and environmental impact.

Can I review the data prior to releasing it to the EPA?
