Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

The following rule amendments are proposed pursuant to the authority of the Commissioner of Buildings under Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter.

 

 

On December 28, 2009, the Mayor signed local law 87 requiring the owners of covered buildings, as defined in the law, including city-owned buildings, to perform energy audits and retrocommissioning and file energy efficiency reports with the department.

 

 

The law also requires the department to specify the information to be contained in the reports. The proposed rule sets out procedures for energy audits, retrocommissioning, and for filing energy efficiency reports. The proposed rule also establishes a penalty for failure to file an energy efficiency report, classifies such failure to file as a class 2 violation, and provides a process to challenge the penalty.

 

 

The proposed rule sets out qualifications for energy auditors and retrocommissioning agents along with registration requirements for those individuals who are not registered design professionals.

 

 

Effective Date: 
Sat, 10/13/2012
