Whether you look to whole-building utility data and energy benchmarking to stay in compliance with local regulations, to identify opportunities to improve building performance, to take advantage of green financing or to get an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR rating, it can be difficult for multifamily properties to take advantage of the benefits that come with improved data tracking. Until recently, it has been challenging for some owners and operators to even determine whether or not their utility provider was able to give them the whole-building energy consumption information they needed. Fortunately, help recently arrived in the form of a new ENERGY STAR interactive map.
Now, you can simply search by zip code to learn if your property lies within the service territory of a utility that provides whole-building energy benchmarking data to customers. Check out the map for yourself to see if you have been missing out on an opportunity to reduce operating costs, showcase superior energy performance or gain an edge on the competition!
