BUILDING ENERGY RETROFIT BILL INTRODUCED

Today, New York City Council Member Costa Constantinides introduced a bill to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from NYC’s large buildings. The bill proposes new carbon emissions caps and energy performance requirements for the city’s large buildings, starting in 2022.

This past summer, major building and energy stakeholders demonstrated their support for bold action on climate change by endorsing the Blueprint for Efficiency, a report from the 80x50 Buildings Partnership convened by Urban Green. Today’s announcement is the first step in the legislative process to translate this framework into policy. We look forward to working with Council Member Constantinides to incorporate all aspects of the Blueprint and deliver the largest carbon savings in NYC history.

In addition, a bill establishing PACE financing to help owners fund energy efficiency improvements was also introduced. The hearing for both bills is scheduled for December 4, 2018.
