Upon written request from a building owner, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) may exempt a covered building for a specific year based on one or more of the following conditions:

  1. Energy service for the covered building was not provided for a full calendar for which reporting would otherwise be required;
  2. The building was wholly unoccupied during the entire calendar year for which reporting would otherwise be required;
  3. A demolition permit was issued for the building during the calendar year for which reporting would be required; or
  4. Due to a special circumstance unique to the building, compliance would cause undue hardship for the owner.

Within 30 days of receiving the exemption request, BPS will provide a written response to acknowledge receipt of the request and determine whether the request is approved or denied.

To assure compliance, you must complete the online form below or send a request letter to the following address by April 22, 2018:
