2019 Energy Star Commercial Building Extended Due Date

ENERGY STAR is a voluntary government program that allows property owners to monitor their energy consumption to save money and reduce their impact on the environment.

Users input their utility data and building information for a given property and the ENERGY STAR portal gives them a score from 1 to 100 rating their energy consumption based on building type and square footage.

If a property gets a score of 75 or higher that means that property is eligible to apply for ENERGY STAR certification. A score of 75 indicates that your property is performing better than 75% of buildings of the same category.

The ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager system is now up and running after a long hiatus, during which time the EPA updated the national ENERGY STAR commercial building database. The updates were needed in order to accurately reflect the metrics of today’s more energy-efficient buildings.

Due to the hiatus, the EPA has extended the submission date for 2019 ENERGY STAR awards to 12/31/19 for commercial and other property types. Properties are encouraged to submit their applications well prior to this date to allow for any questions that may arise during the process. We are happy to assist our customers both old and new!
