LOCAL CITY BENCHMARKING

Requirements Overview

Building Performance Colorado has collaborated with cities that already have benchmarking requirements in place —Boulder, Denver, and Fort Collins— in order to streamline the reporting process. 

Please visit these cities' websites to learn more about their benchmarking requirements.

If you are benchmarking in another city in Colorado, please reach out to the BPC Help Center for more assistance on how to comply with the State's requirements.

INFORMATION FOR LOCAL CITY BUILDING OWNERS

How do I benchmark if I own a building in Boulder, Denver, or Fort Collins?

Submit a Benchmarking Report & Pay Building Performance Colorado’s Annual Fee
Submit your benchmarking report through your local city’s data reporting link AND pay Building Performance Colorado’s annual fee of $100 (per covered building). Once your benchmarking report is approved, this will put you in compliance with your local city’s benchmarking requirements. Once your fee is paid, this will put you in compliance with Building Performance Colorado.
 

 

 

How do I submit a Waiver or Exemption request if I own a building in Boulder, Denver, or Fort Collins?

Submit a Waiver/Exemption Request & Pay Building Performance Colorado’s Annual Fee
Check to see if your building is eligible for a one-year waiver or exemption. If eligible, please submit a waiver or exemption request with the required supporting documentation. Upon submission, your request will be reviewed for compliance.
Please note, to comply with Building Performance Colorado through the waiver or exemption pathway confirmation of annual fee payment of $100 (per covered building) is required.
 
Alternatively, if your building is exempt from your local reporting requirements, this does not mean you are exempt from reporting to Building Performance Colorado. 

How will I know if I am in compliance with my Local City Benchmarking Program and Building Performance Colorado?

A building owner can be in or out of compliance with either the State or a local government benchmarking ordinance. Building owners will receive notices from their local jurisdictions, as well as from Building Performance Colorado, notifying them when they are in compliance with either city or state benchmarking requirements. Until a building owner receives this notice, they will not be in compliance and additional action is required.

The difference between the Colorado Building ID and Local City Building ID’s

If you are a building owner in Boulder, Denver, or Fort Collins, you will enter your City Building ID (see your city’s benchmarking website for more details) into ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to comply with both the State and your local city benchmarking requirements. If you own a building outside of these jurisdictions, you will enter your Colorado Building ID into Portfolio Manager.
