Today we are participating in a workshop at the California Energy Commission where their staff is seeking comments regarding proposed changes to regulations for the Nonresidential Building Energy Use Disclosure Program (also known as the AB 1103 Program).

Energy Commissioner Andrew McAllister and Commissioner Karen Douglas are leading an effort to review the regulations and make sure they implement the underlying legislation in the most efficacious way possible.

Throughout the last few years we have worked closely with the Energy Commission to help them better understand the policy issues related to the implementation of the AB 1103 regs on owners and managers.

You can follow the link below to review language.  Many of the suggested changes our industry have provided in the past are now incorporated into the suggested regulations, including a new definition for “building operator,” clarification of when the information is to be provided, and clarification that tenant information is to be provided to owners/managers by utilities without the need for tenant authorization.

Since many of you have now had direct experience with implementing AB 1103 your input is that much more valuable.
