Clean buildings are essential to meeting our state energy goals. In 2019 the Clean Buildings bill was signed into law and later expanded in 2022. The objective is to lower costs and pollution from fossil fuel consumption in the state’s existing buildings. The law directed Commerce to develop and implement an energy performance standard for covered buildings, and the expansion now includes multifamily buildings. The law also provides incentives to encourage building owners to make energy efficiency improvements earlier than required.
