Seattle Simplifies Compliance, Extends Deadline for Mid-Size Buildings to Report Energy Use


SEATTLE, WA – September 18, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — The Seattle City Council passed legislation yesterday to revise the reporting requirements for buildings covered under the City’s pioneering Energy Benchmarking and Reporting Ordinance in order to strengthen the program and make it easier for owners of non-residential and multifamily residential properties to comply. Benchmarking energy use helps building owners determine the total amount of energy that their buildings use, which can help them track and control costs and prioritize energy and money-saving upgrades.
