Update
Certain EBEWE Reporting Deadlines Tolled

City of Los Angeles Energy and Water Efficiency Ordinance

Per the City’s update here, the next A/RCx reporting deadline is tolled, but the time requirement criteria are not suspended. This means that although a building with a Building ID ending in 0 or 1 would not need to submit evidence of completed audits and retro-commissioning or request exemptions by the December 1, 2021 deadline, the time criteria associated with exemptions remain unchanged.

Mayor Garcetti Signs New Ordinance Into Law

In a major effort to reduce greenhouse gases generated by Los Angeles buildings, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti signed a bold measure to improve energy and water efficiency. The Existing Buildings Energy and Water Efficiency Ordinance (EBEWE), unanimously approved by the City Council, will make public the annual energy and water consumption of all buildings over 20,000 square feet in the City of L.A. This ordinance not only reduces greenhouse gases, but also facilitates the comparison of buildings’ energy and water consumption, and can reduce building operating costs. Read the full ordinance here.
