Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Chapter 2 of title 4 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 4-207.2 to read as follows:

                     § 4-207.2 Monitoring electricity and fossil fuel usage in certain facilities. a. For the purposes of this section:

Covered facility. The term “covered facility” means a facility for which the city is responsible for the payment of electricity utility bills and where at least one electricity account exists for which demand was at least 300 kilowatts (kW) during the previous fiscal year.

Department. The term “department” means the department of citywide administrative services.

Electricity usage telemetry equipment. The term “electricity usage telemetry equipment” means equipment that allows electricity usage to be measured and reported in near real-time.

b. No later than December 31, 2018, and every year for a period of three years from that date, the department shall submit to the speaker of the council and to the mayor, and make publicly available on its website, a report on electricity and fossil fuel usage in, and assessments of or improvements made to the envelopes of, certain covered facilities. Such report shall include, but need not be limited to, the following information:

1. For each covered facility:

(a) Street address;

(b) A statement as to whether electricity usage telemetry equipment has been installed at such facility;

(c) If such electricity usage telemetry equipment has not been installed at such facility, whether such installation is appropriate and practicable and, if appropriate and practicable, the year such equipment is expected to be installed;

(d) The electricity usage of such facility during the previous fiscal year or the portion of such period of time that such facility was a covered facility;

(e) The change in such facility’s electricity usage over the last five fiscal years or the portion of such period of time that such facility was a covered facility; and

(f) The total change in electricity usage over the same period for all covered facilities.

2. For each covered facility that is a city-owned building:

(a) The amount of fossil fuel used by such facility during the previous fiscal year or the portion of such period of time that such facility was a covered facility and a city-owned building;

(b) The change in such facility’s fossil fuel usage over the last five fiscal years or the portion of such period of time that such facility was a covered facility and a city-owned building;

(c) The total change in fossil fuel usage over the same period for all covered facilities that are city-owned buildings;

(d) A statement as to whether the city has assessed the envelope of such facility during the previous fiscal year; and

(e) A description of any improvements made to the envelope of such facility that were commenced, continued or completed during the previous fiscal year.

c. The department, in conjunction with any other appropriate city agency, shall coordinate the installation of electricity usage telemetry equipment in any covered facility where the department has determined that installation of such equipment is appropriate and practicable.

d. Following installation of electricity usage telemetry equipment by the department at a covered facility, the department shall train agency personnel responsible for such facility in using such equipment to monitor electricity usage.
