URBAN GREEN RELEASES LL97 RECS ANALYSIS

The NYC Department of Buildings recently released proposed rules for Local Law 97. The rules set strong targets for 2050, help unlock electrification, and align the law with state and local climate policies.

The proposed rules have raised questions about how renewable energy credits (RECs) will impact the law. In our latest analysis, we've estimated the outcome if all covered buildings purchase as many RECs as possible to comply with 2030 caps.
