NOPH - Local Law - Municipal Building Energy Benchmarking

 

WHEREAS, the Town of East Hampton has numerous buildings and is interested in adopting a local law to provide for the use of Building Energy Benchmarking to promote the public health, safety, and welfare by making information on municipal building energy use available in order to help identify opportunities to cut costs and reduce pollution in the Town of East Hampton; and

 

WHEREAS the Town Board is considering the adoption of a Local Law to amend the Town Code to include a benchmarking requirement  for certain municipal buildings, said local law to read as follows:

 

INTRODUCTORY # 2  OF 2017

LOCAL LAW #      2017

 

A LOCAL LAW TO ESTABLISH ENERGY BENCHMARKING REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS

 

Be it enacted by the Town Board of the Town of East Hampton as follows:

 

The Code of the Town of East Hampton is hereby amended by adding a new Chapter 175, entitled "MUNICIPAL BUILDING ENERGY BENCHMARKING," to read as follows:

 

 

175-1.  PURPOSE.

Buildings are the single largest user of energy in the State of New York.  The poorest performing buildings typically use several times the energy of the highest performing buildings-for the exact same building use.  As such, this Local Law will use Building Energy Benchmarking to promote the public health, safety, and welfare by making available good, actionable information on municipal building energy use to help identify opportunities to cut costs and reduce pollution in the Town of East Hampton. 

 

Collecting, reporting, and sharing Building Energy Benchmarking data on a regular basis allows municipal officials and the public to understand the energy performance of municipal buildings relative to similar buildings nationwide.  Equipped with this information, the Town of East Hampton is able to make smarter, more cost-effective operational and capital investment decisions, reward efficiency, and drive widespread, continuous improvement.

 

175-2.  DEFINITIONS

 

"Benchmarking Information" shall mean information generated by Portfolio Manager, as herein defined including descriptive information about the physical building and its operational characteristics.

 

"Building Energy Benchmarking" shall mean the process of measuring a building's Energy use, tracking that use over time, and comparing performance to similar buildings.

 

"Covered Municipal Building" shall mean a building or facility that is owned or occupied by the Town of East Hampton that is 1,000 square feet or larger in size. 

 

"Department" shall mean Town of East Hampton Department of Natural Resources

 

"Energy" shall mean electricity, natural gas, steam, hot or chilled water, fuel oil, or other product for use in a building, or renewable on-site electricity generation, for purposes of providing heating, cooling, lighting, water heating, or for powering or fueling other end-uses in the building and related facilities, as reflected in Utility bills or other documentation of actual Energy use.

 

"Energy Performance Score" shall mean the numeric rating generated by Portfolio Manager that compares the Energy usage of the building to that of similar buildings.

 

"Energy Use Intensity (EUI)" shall mean the kBTUs (1,000 British Thermal Units) used per square foot of gross floor area.

 

"Gross Floor Area" shall mean the total number of enclosed square feet measured between the exterior surfaces of the fixed walls within any structure used or intended for supporting or sheltering any use or occupancy.

 

"Portfolio Manager" shall mean ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, the internet-based tool developed and maintained by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to track and assess the relative Energy performance of buildings nationwide, or successor.

 

"Utility" shall mean an entity that distributes and sells Energy to Covered Municipal Buildings.

 

"Weather Normalized Site EUI" shall mean the amount of Energy that would have been used by a property under 30-year average temperatures, accounting for the difference between average temperatures and yearly fluctuations.

 

 

175-3.  APPLICABILITY

 

(1) This Local Law is applicable to all Covered Municipal Buildings as defined in Section 2 of this Local Law.

 

(2) The Department may exempt a particular Covered Municipal Building from the benchmarking requirement if it has characteristics that make benchmarking impractical.   

 

 

175-4.  BENCHMARKING REQUIRED FOR COVERED MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS

 

(1) No later than December 31, 2017, and no later than May 1 every year thereafter, the Department shall enter into Portfolio Manager the total Energy consumed by each Covered Municipal Building, along with all other descriptive information required by Portfolio Manager for the previous calendar year.

 

(2) For new Covered Municipal Buildings that have not accumulated 12 months of Energy use data by the first applicable date following occupancy for inputting Energy use into Portfolio Manager, the Department shall begin inputting data in the following year.

 

175-5.  DISCLOSURE AND PUBLICATION OF BENCHMARKING INFORMATION

 

(1) The Department shall make available to the public on the internet Benchmarking Information for the previous calendar year:

              (a) no later than December 31, 2017 and by September 1 of each year thereafter for               Covered Municipal Buildings; and

 

(2) The Department shall make available to the public on the internet and update at least annually, the following Benchmarking Information:

              (a) Summary statistics on Energy consumption for Covered Municipal Buildings derived               from aggregation of Benchmarking Information; and

              (b) For each Covered Municipal Building individually:

                            (i) The status of compliance with the requirements of this Local Law; and

                            (ii) The building address, primary use type, and gross floor area; and

                            (iii) Annual summary statistics, including site EUI, Weather Normalized Source                             EUI, annual GHG emissions, and an Energy Performance Score where                                           available;                                           and

                            (iv) A comparison of the annual summary statistics (as required by Section 5                            (2)(b)(iii) of this Local Law) across calendar years for all years since annual                             reporting under this Local Law has been required for said building.

WHEREAS, the region's tourist and second home industries, the cornerstone of its prosperity, are threatened if the adverse consequences of traffic congestion are not promptly and adequately addressed; and

 

WHEREAS, this act will provide the necessary governmental framework and resources that will foster the cooperation necessary to develop a public transit proposal for the Peconic Bay region.  This legislation will give the local governments the regional framework to develop and implement this initiative, and will mandate the cooperation of state and federal agencies. Further, it will also provide for the involvement of all stakeholders and community members in the development process to insure an open and comprehensive decision making process; now, therefore be it

 

RESOLVED, that the Town Board of the Town of East Hampton supports this initiative, approve the Home Rule Request in furtherance of Senate Bill S.3225 and Assembly Bill A.2671 and pursuant to Article IX of the State Constitution and Municipal Home Rule Law, hereby requests the New York State Legislature enact such legislation; and, be it further

 

RESOLVED, that the Town Clerk is requested to execute and certify the attached Home Rule Request forms and forward them to the appropriate agencies.
