A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to a building energy efficiency grade

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

   Section 1. Section 28-309.12.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 33 for the year 2018, is amended to read as follows:

§ 28-309.12.1 Definitions. As used in section 28-309.12, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

 

ENERGY EFFICIENCY GRADE. The term “energy efficiency grade” means, for a covered building, a grade based on an energy efficiency score assigned through the benchmarking tool in accordance with this section as follows:

 

1.                     If such score is equal to or greater than [90] 85 the energy efficiency grade shall be A;

 

2.                     If such score is equal to or greater than [50] 70 but less than [90] 85, the energy efficiency grade shall be B;

 

3.                     If such score is equal to or greater than [20] 55 but less than [50] 70, the energy efficiency grade shall be C;

 

4.                      If such score is less than [20] 55, the energy efficiency grade shall be D;

 

5.                      If the owner of such building has not complied with section 28-309.12.2, and such owner has had an opportunity to be heard with respect to such non-compliance, the energy efficiency grade shall be F; and

 

6.                     If, in accordance with the rules of the department, it is not feasible to obtain an energy efficiency score for such building or if such building is subject to the exception in section 28-309.8, the energy efficiency grade shall be N.

 

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as local law number 33 for the year 2018.
