Local Law 87

October 3, 2013 | Posted by Elizabeth Larsen 10/3/2013 | Permalink

Local Law 87 was passed in 2009 as part of New York City’s “Greener, Greater Buildings Plan.” It requires energy audits and retro-commissioning to be carried out every 10 years for buildings exceeding 50,000 square feet (and certain other buildings located on the same tax lot or under the same condominium management that together comprise 100,000 square feet). The first energy efficiency reports documenting the completion of the audit and the retro-commissioning measures used for certain properties—those located on a Tax Block number that ends in the digit 3—are due to the NYC Department of Buildings by the end of this 2013 calendar year. See the reporting schedule below for all affected NYC properties.
