“The Urban Green Council designed Local Law 84 to hold larger buildings and properties in New York with the largest carbon footprint accountable for the resources they consume,” said Jeff Carleton, President of Carleton Energy Consulting.
Identifying who Must Comply With Local Law 84
Basically, there are three ways to identify who must comply with Local Law 84:
1. Covered structures occupying more than 50,000 square feet
2. Properties with more than one structure must calculate the total gross square footage of all buildings. If the sum of all buildings is greater than the minimum 100,000 allowed, then the property is subject to Local Law 84 compliance.
3. If a condominium property exceeds 100,000 gross square feet, it is subject to Local Law 84 compliance, regardless of tax lots included.
Saving Money with Local Law 84
Compliance is required for all buildings that fall under the law. Nevertheless, there are several advantages to this regulation. Often, property owners are not aware of how much utilities and water usage costs. Compliance with Local Law 84 can help save owners money in three ways:
Auditing – Under Local Law 84, building owners are required to disclose all information regarding energy and water use for all buildings on each property. There are online tools provided by the Urban Green Council to help make compliance easier.
Online Boiler Room Management – An online boiler management system can help pinpoint energy use issues while identifying correction methods. A professional boiler room management company is the most efficient way to cut energy costs by diagnosing problems quickly avoiding the hassle and costs associated with training onsite staff and pay for additional operators.
Continued Commissioning – After compliance with Local Law 84 has been satisfied, staying current with energy use can lead to cost savings long term. The law requires multiple years of compliance and performance, but it can be difficult to stay on track between reporting periods. Owners can comply with Local Law 84 easily and conveniently with the help of a professional company like Carleton Energy Consulting.
