In Philadelphia, benchmarking service is provided by the experts at Falcon Engineering. We bring a proactive approach to ensuring that you meet energy usage requirements. With our help, you can save money in the most innovative ways possible.
Philadelphia’s new Energy Benchmarking Law aims to establish a system of energy benchmarking and reporting of energy and water consumption volumes in all non-residential buildings 50,000 square feet or larger. Once the energy and water usage data are input into the US EPA Portfolio Manager, and the building is assigned a score comparing its energy consumption to buildings of similar size within a specific geographical area. At this time, it is unknown whether or not the Law will require a minimum score be met within a specific timeframe.
Benchmarking compares your building’s energy usage to standards and the energy usage of similar types of buildings. In simple terms, it is the flashlight by which you can see the inefficiencies in your building’s energy consuming systems. You will be able to track the impact of new equipment, system problems and efficiency on an annual basis and make improvements to save on energy costs.
