Key points below regarding Local Law 88 (LL88):

Lighting Upgrades:

    • LL88 mandates that common areas in residential buildings greater than 25,000 square feet and all areas in non-residential buildings greater than 25,000 square feet upgrade their lighting to meet current New York City Energy Conservation Code standards by 2025.
    • The goal is to reduce energy consumption by installing more efficient lighting systems, leading to substantial cost savings.
    • Improvements in lighting technology over the past two decades make this feasible.


      • All non-residential buildings greater than 25,000 square feet must install electrical sub-meters for each large non-residential tenant space greater than 5,000 square feet.
      • These sub-meters provide individual tenants with regular energy use information, allowing them to monitor their consumption accurately.
      • Non-residential buildings must also provide monthly energy statements to tenants.

Compliance Deadline:

    • The deadline for both the lighting upgrades and sub-metering requirements is 2025.
