Brisbane Building Efficiency Program

By: Madison Davis, President/CEO, Brisbane Chamber of Commerce,, 415-467-7283

This year, the City of Brisbane will officially be launching its Building Efficiency Program and will be sending out a variety of communications containing information to prepare you to meet the compliance date of May 15, 2021.
Most owners of commercial, industrial, and residential buildings in Brisbane that are 10,000 square feet or larger will need to perform annual energy and water benchmarking. This information will then need to be reported to the city in order to meet the requirements of the program. Notification letters will be mailed by February 15, 2021 to all building owners who will need to comply.
For more information, join the program launch and orientation webinar on Tuesday, February 25th from 10 am – 11 am.  The orientation will cover details of the program, requirements, and how to comply. In addition, information regarding available resources and support will be provided.
Register here for the orientation
Congratulations to Jason Cranston of Jones Lang LeSalle, Samantha Romero of SSF Genesis, and Nathan Barulich of BiRite Food Service Distributors for their early completion of the program requirements. BiRite used the Building Efficiency Program to analyze their recent investment in a 1.6 megawatt solar and battery storage system. Details of their journey can be found in this case study.
