Have you received a LL87 Compliance Reminder? Contact us to file your energy efficiency reports for energy audit & retro-commissioning.

Mayor Bloomberg's Local Law 87 energy auditing and retro-commissioning mandate goes into effect starting January 2013 for large buildings in New York City. Buildings that cover 50,000 square feet or more of space or, two or more buildings exceeding 100,000 sq. ft. will need to begin energy audits & retro-commissioning and also file an energy efficiency report (EER) by the end of 2014 if their building block no. ends in 4.


If you have received a LL87/09 Compliance Reminder notice from the Department of Buildings, contact us to learn how you can file your EER for full compliance and avoid accumulating fines from any further delays.


By starting the energy audit & retro-commissioning early, you can save more money before the due date, but more importantly, get surer access to financial incentives, grants & rebates to reduce the costs of energy efficiency upgrades identified.
