Workshop May 9: Clean Buildings Incentive Program Updates

Last month, the Energy Audits for Public Buildings program was launched, and House Bill (HB) 1976 signed into law.

The energy audits program is exclusively for publicly owned buildings. It is funded with $20 million to assist in the cost of ASHRAE Level 2 energy audits, where required by the Clean Buildings Performance Standard.

The audit incentive base rate is $0.50 per sq. ft. of gross floor area for Tier 1 covered buildings. This funding can be used with other opportunities, such as the Early Adopter Incentive Program.

House Bill (HB) 1976 was signed into law on March 14, authorizing Commerce to fund incentives greater than the base incentive payments for Tier 1 and Tier 2 covered buildings. Tier 1 incentives offer a base payment of $0.85 per sq. ft., while Tier 2 incentives offer $0.30 per sq. ft.

Learn more, in tomorrow’s Clean Buildings workshop. The Clean Buildings team will discuss and solicit comments on the incentive program updates, and introduce the verified energy auditor network.

WHEN: Thursday, May 9, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.

WHERE: Zoom meeting online
