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 covered buildings and multifamily buildings. The law also provides incentives to encourage building owners to make energy efficiency improvements earlier than required. Learn more about the Clean Buildings Performance Standards.
Find resources from Commerce and other organizations that support compliance, including a directory of qualified persons and qualified energy auditors that may be able to assist you in compliance.
The Clean Buildings Portal is a database of all Tier 1 buildings and provides building owners a secure system to manage their building’s compliance with the Clean Buildings Performance Standard and submit applications to the Early Adopter Incentive Program.
The Early Adopter Incentive Program is available to qualified building owners interested in early compliance with the Clean Buildings Performance Standard. Learn more about the qualifications and application process.
