Under Local Law 87 (LL87), the owner of a covered building must file an energy efficiency report (EER) between January 1st and December 31st of the calendar year the report is due, and every tenth calendar year thereafter. The energy efficiency report consists of an audit report and a retro-commissioning report, which must be filed electronically with the Department of Buildings (DOB) by December 31st of the calendar year in which the covered building is due.
The two components of the EER are the audit report and retro-commissioning report, which are both in an electronic spreadsheet format. The City has collaborated with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to develop the input tool. The input tool is an easy-to-use Excel spreadsheet with similar reporting features as the NYSERDA Multifamily Performance Plan Energy Reduction Plan (ERP) Tool.
UPDATE as of 9/19/30: The finalized input tools are now available.
