Benchmarking Compliance Report Submission
The link to submit your Benchmarking Report to the City is now available on the Greener, Greater Buildings Plan website, www.nyc.gov/GGBP. To register and/or access your account, use the EPA’s Portfolio Manager. After you enter your data, follow the instructions on the Green, Greater Buildings Plan website to submit your Benchmarking Compliance Report.
Submitting Benchmarking Data for Multiple Buildings
Beginning June 13, 2011, revisions can be made and additional buildings can be added to Benchmarking reports generated by the Portfolio Manager Tool. Reports re-submitted after June 13, 2011, will include all new information entered as well as any other information that was previously submitted. Prior to June 13, 2011, any new information entered into the Portfolio Manager Tool would override previously submitted information and the new report would only contain the latest information entered. For more information, please review the message from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) about this change.
