This is just a friendly reminder that as of April 1, 2013 the second group of San Francisco Commercial Properties (approximately 2/3 of San Francisco's building stock) need to have submitted a Confirmation of audit. If you have any questions about this feel free to contact us.
It is November 15th. If your building in San Francisco is 10,000 sq ft or greater and if you are part of the initial group (approximately 1/3 of the building stock) then you have to have your audit completed by today! If you don't you are potentially liable for penalty fees depending on the square footage of your building and how long you fail to be compliant.
If you are part of this first group you need to schedule your audit now and get it filed with the Department of the Environment. For more information about San Francisco's ordinance requirements check the compliance section of our website under San Francisco's “Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance” 17-11.
San Francisco's ordinances require energy audits of commercial buildings 10,000 sq ft or greater. If you are in the initial group of commercial buildings (approximately 1/3 of the building stock) with the November 15th deadline you need to make arrangements for an audit now. It takes time to schedule an audit as you have to arrange with your property managers and tenants to allow full access to your building. Also as there are so many buildings currently out of compliance it is going to prove harder and harder to find a qualified auditor/engineer who has time in their busy schedule to go through your property.
The time to schedule an audit is now if you are in the first group. You have only a month left to get your audit completed and filed with the Department of the Environment.
