ABOUT THE CLEAN BUILDINGS ACT:
The Clean Buildings Act is designed to reduce energy costs, fossil fuel consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions from commercial and multifamily buildings. Legislation requires building owners to reduce their energy usage to meet or exceed prescribed Energy Usage Intensity (EUI) targets based on the building’s usage type.
- Commercial buildings larger than 50,000 SF are required to meet mandatory clean building performance standards. Compliance deadlines are being phased in over the next several years, beginning in June of 2026 for buildings more than 220,000 SF.
- Building owners cannot ignore these requirements as compliance delays can be costly. Non-compliance penalties can start at $5,000 plus $1 per gross square foot for every year of non-compliance.
- The state has budgeted $75 million to offer Early Adopter Incentives to help with the costs of achieving compliance.
