The City of Portland’s Energy Performance Reporting Program for Commercial Buildings launched in January with detailed compliance instructions for owners of commercial buildings 20,000 square feet and over. This new How-to Guide is available for download on the Energy Performance website along with other compliance tools.
Hands-on workshops are scheduled from February 24 to April 7 to help building managers meet the first compliance deadline on Earth Day, April 22, 2016. These workshops provide expert assistance to navigate the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool and retrieve building energy consumption data from NW Natural, Pacific Power and Portland General Electric. Find workshop dates and links to register.
BPS also established an Energy Reporting Helpdesk to answer any questions regarding the new Energy Reporting requirements. Contact the Helpdesk at 503-823-7070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
