Benchmark Reminder

By Renee Sosnowski

As of 8/2/15 the DOB has begun enforcing the issuance of additional violations on a quarterly basis for continued failure to file a Benchmark Report of energy use.

Building owners are required to perform annual analyses of their property’s total energy use and were required to submit these Benchmarking reports by May 1, 2015.

Each of these quarterly violations carries a $500.00 DOB penalty. For details, as well as how to challenge a violation you believe was received in error, please click here.
