Effective in 2017, privately owned buildings in Los Angeles that are 20,000 square feet or more and buildings owned by the City that are 7,500 or more are required to be benchmarked, and owners must disclose annual energy and water consumption.
Following the initial year of compliance, buildings must continue to report by June 1st of each year.
Beginning in 2021, buildings must demonstrate that they are energy and water-efficient or on a pathway to efficiency.
