GREEN BUILDING PROCEDURES

 

In addition to LL86 Annual Reporting that is the responsibility of the city agency managing the expenditure of city funds on a project, several other procedures related to LL86 implementation have been developed to facilitate administration of the law.  Links to detailed descriptions of each of these are found below.

Green Power Credit Request
Projects with a LEED® requirement should follow this procedure to utilize the City’s ongoing purchase of wind power credits in order to qualify for points under the Green Power Credit and/or Innovation Credit that contribute to the achievement of a LEED® rating.

LL86 Exemption Request
Applicable only to projects that need to apply for an exemption from all or part of a LL86 requirement. 

LEED® Registration
In cases when building construction is being directly managed by a city agency, this describes how the design team should list the project name and owner on the USGBC website when applying for certification of a LEED® rating.

LL86 Energy Rates
To ensure the consistency of energy cost calculations across projects and because actual rates can vary significantly over time as well as by location and other factors, MOEC has posted here the estimated rates that will be used for reporting.  See the FAQ's on Procedures for information on the methodology that agencies should use for energy calculations.  

Inflation Factors
As required by LL86, the construction cost and city contribution threshold criteria cited in the law must be indexed to inflation.  The factors to be used for this purpose are listed here, by calendar year.
