MOS Releases Municipal Benchmarking Report

In June 2012, City Council passed energy benchmarking and disclosure legislation requiring all commercial buildings 50,000 square feet or larger to use Portfolio Manager to report their energy and water usage annually to the City of Philadelphia, beginning with 2012 data. A year ahead of this requirement, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability (MOS) benchmarked 2011 energy usage for all municipal facilities 10,000 square feet and larger, as well as dozens of facilities below this threshold. By tracking data on an expanded set of municipal facilities and beginning a year before citywide required compliance, this report will establish a baseline for evaluating building performance in the years to come.
