Energy Performance Reporting Policy for Commercial Buildings

  • Energy reporting begins 2017 for commercial buildings over 20,000 square feet

  • Commercial buildings over 50,000 square feet began reporting in 2016

To reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, Portland City Council passed a policy in 2015 that requires commercial buildings 20,000 square feet and over to:

    1. Track energy use with ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager®, and
    2. Report energy performance information annually to the City of Portland.
