What is Local Law 33 of 2018?
Per the Department of Buildings, Energy Efficiency Scores (and labels detailing those scores) are now available for buildings on the Covered Buildings List.
Scores can be found for each building here in DOB NOW. Just scroll to the bottom of the page, and click on “Get Your Energy Efficiency Rating” to access the score and label for your building.
Once you have the label, you’ll need to post it “in a conspicuous location near each public entrance to such building.”
Labels must be posted before October 31st, according to the latest DOB Service Notice update. Failure to post the label may result in a civil penalty of $1,250.
As a reminder, this regulation applies to all buildings on the Covered Buildings List – generally, buildings over 25,000 square feet – or multiple buildings on a lot that total 100,000 square feet or more. The posted labels will have to be updated with each year’s grade and score and re-posted by 10/31 annually.
There are more details on placement, and answers for specific building questions in the DOB’s FAQ Guide attached to the bottom of this article.
