By Council Members Koo, Brannan, Yeger, Chin, Constantinides, Menchaca, Koslowitz, Rivera and Kallos

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to allowing residential cooperatives to consolidate required energy efficiency reports

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1.  Section 28-308.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding the following definition in appropriate alphabetical order to read as follows:

                     COOPERATIVE CORPORATION.  A corporation governed by the requirements of the state cooperative corporation law or general business law that, among other things, grants persons the right to reside in a cooperative apartment, that right existing by such person’s ownership of certificates of stock, proprietary lease, or other evidence of ownership of an interest in such entity.

§ 2. Section 28-308.4.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 87 for the year 2009, is amended to read as follows:

                     § 28-308.4.1 Due dates.  The first energy efficiency reports for covered buildings in existence on the effective date of this article and for new buildings shall be due, beginning with calendar year 2013, in the calendar year with a final digit that is the same as the last digit of the building’s tax block number, as illustrated in the following chart:

Last digit of tax block number     0        1        2         3         4        5        6        7        8         9

Year first EER is due     2020     2021   2022     2013    2014   2015  2016     2017    2018    2019

 

Owners of covered buildings (i) that are less than 10 years old at the commencement of their  first assigned calendar year or (ii) that have undergone substantial rehabilitation, as certified by a registered design professional, within the 10 year period prior to any calendar year in which an energy efficiency report is due, such that at the commencement of such calendar year all of the base building systems of such building are in compliance with the New York city energy conservation code as in effect for new buildings constructed on and after July 1, 2010, or as in effect on the date of such substantial rehabilitation, whichever is later, may defer submitting an energy efficiency report for such building until the tenth calendar year after such assigned calendar year.

                     [Exception] Exceptions: 

                     1.  The first due dates for city buildings shall be in accordance with a staggered schedule, commencing with calendar year 2013 and ending with calendar year 2022 for buildings in existence on the effective date of this article, to be submitted by the department of citywide administrative services to the department on or prior to December 31, 2011.  A city building constructed after the effective date of this article shall be added to such schedule within 10 years after the issuance of the first certificate of occupancy for such building.  Copies of energy efficiency reports submitted to the department with respect to city buildings that are not submitted by the department of citywide administrative services shall also be submitted to the department of citywide administrative services.

                     2.  A cooperative corporation that owns multiple covered buildings located on different tax block numbers, that is required to file an energy efficiency report for more than one covered building in different calendar years, may consolidate all such energy efficiency reports into one report, disaggregated by covered building, due no later than the year in which the last energy efficiency report would be due, which shall be accepted by the department in satisfaction of the requirements of this section for each covered building included in such consolidated report.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of buildings may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such date.
