Need Help Complying with the SF Energy Ordinance for Commercial Buildings?

What is the ordinance?

In 2011, the City of San Francisco adopted an ordinance that requires existing commercial buildings of 10,000 square feet or more to provide plans for managing their energy efficiency.

What do I need to do to comply?

To comply with the ordinance, the city requires that you provide two things: an actionable energy efficiency plan, and an annual benchmark of your building’s current energy use. Confused about what this might entail? This is where we come in.
