Require energy audits and reporting

Require owners of large multifamily and commercial properties to undertake regular energy audits filed with NYSERDA.

Page 191: "Require multifamily and commercial properties larger than 25,000 sq. ft. to undertake a comprehensive building energy assessment (audit), to be conducted by appropriately trained workers, at least once every 10 years that evaluates the building’s systems and identifies opportunities to invest in energy efficiency upgrades, electrification or electrification- readiness for building systems, and climate risk with resilience measures. Filing an assessment report with NYSERDA would be required on a cycle established by the State or at the time that a building permit is needed for specified work that must conform to Code, whichever comes first."
