This San Francisco Building Energy Benchmarking ordinance was created to track and publish energy usage data of existing nonresidential buildings through benchmarking. Nonresidential buildings are required to undergo standardized energy audits every five years, and owners must measure their building’s energy usage and submit the data to the City. San Francisco’s Existing Buildings Ordinance applies to non-residential buildings with gross floor area of 10,000 square feet or more and to multifamily residential buildings with 50,000 square feet or larger. In order to comply, building owners must conduct a standardized energy audit report every five years and also report energy usage data to the San Francisco Department of the Environment using EPA’s Portfolio Manager platform on an annual basis.
