Seattle’s Energy Benchmarking policy supports the City’s goals of reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from existing buildings. The Building Tune-Ups policy helps Seattle building owners identify smart, responsible ways to reduce energy and water costs.
The Seattle Energy Benchmarking enforcement deadline is October 1st. After October 1st, all non-compliant building owners that have failed to submit complete 2018 energy benchmarking reports will be issued Notice of Violations with assessed fines.
October 1st is also the Seattle Building Tune-Ups deadline for facilities with 100,000 to 199,999 square feet of nonresidential space. Warning letters will be issued to all non-compliant building owners that fail to submit complete tune-ups by the reporting deadline.
