2017 Benchmarking deadline extended to Feb. 15

One last reprieve has been given to New York City buildings that have not yet benchmarked their energy and water usage for the 2017 calendar year and reported it to the City. The new due date is Friday, Feb. 15, 2019.
The deadline for 2018 data remains the same (May 1, 2019).

This last extension was necessary because the EPA’s Portfolio Manager software was not available for uploading data during the lengthy federal government shutdown.  

This leaves buildings that have not submitted 2017 benchmarking data one last chance to avoid fines for noncompliance with the Benchmarking Law. As a reminder, the law now applies to buildings of 25,000 or greater floor areas on the City’s Covered Buildings List.

Given that utilities need a few days to do their part in this process, any building currently out of compliance needs to take steps to comply immediately.
