Int. No. 633

 

By Council Members Richards, Chin, Mendez, Rosenthal, Rodriguez and Menchaca

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring energy efficiency reports to be filed every five years.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1.  Section 28-308.4 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by Local Law 87 of 2009, is amended to read as follows:

                     § 28-308.4 Energy efficiency report required. Except as otherwise provided in section 28-308.7, the owner of a covered building shall file an energy efficiency report for such building between January first and December thirty-first of the calendar year in which such report is due pursuant to this section and between January first and December thirty-first of every [tenth] fifth calendar year thereafter.

Exceptions:

1. An owner may apply for an extension of time to file an energy efficiency report if despite such owner’s good faith efforts, to be documented in such application, the owner is unable to complete the required energy audit and retro-commissioning prior to the scheduled due date for such report. The commissioner may grant no more than two such extensions of no more than one year each. Extensions granted pursuant to this provision shall not extend the scheduled due dates for subsequent energy efficiency reports.

2. An owner may receive annual extensions of time to file an energy efficiency report based on financial hardship of the building.

                     §2. This local law shall take effect one hundred twenty days after its enactment into law, except that the commissioner of buildings shall take such measures as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such effective date.
