LOCAL LAW 33: BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATINGS
Local Law 33 requires owners of buildings over 25,000 square feet to obtain Building Energy Efficiency Rating labels on an annual basis to display near public-facing entrances. These labels include a 1-100 ENERGY STAR® score and a corresponding A-D letter grade. Ratings are obtained through the Department of Buildings.
Local Law 33 encourages building owners to make efficiency improvements that reduce energy use, lower operating costs, and enhance comfort for occupants. It provides greater transparency into a building’s energy performance and empowers New Yorkers to make informed decisions about the buildings in which they live, work, and play.
