As of September 1, 2013, California’s mandatory benchmarking law will require that you use ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to benchmark your building and disclose that information during certain transactions (see story below for more details).  If you have not already done so, now is the time for someone from your company to learn how to use this important tool.  Here are details from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the newly upgraded tool and seminars on how to use it:

“On July 17, EPA will release the upgraded Portfolio Manager tool, providing users with a new interface, streamlined functionality, and improved usability.  To get you up to speed on the new tool, they are offering a number of trainings, as well as ‘office hours,’ during the month of July.”
