Under the Commercial Buildings Energy Efficiency Ordinance, building owners are required to have an ASHRAE Level 2 energy audit of their building conducted every ten years. In an energy audit, an approved professional will walk through your building and make recommendations on how to improve your building’s efficiency and operations. You are free to choose which, if any, of those recommendations to implement; the point is to understand the potential for improvement and allow building owners to make informed business decisions. Summary energy audit reports should be submitted to the City using the web-based Asset Score tool.
