A new California Energy Commission regulation will take effect January 1, 2012. This regulation, AB 1103, requires the owner of a non-residential property with California, in advance of certain financial transactions, to benchmark the building’s energy use using the U.S. EPA Portfolio Manager system and to disclose statements of the building’s energy usage to potential buyers, lessees, and lenders.

The proposal states a building owner shall comply with this article according to the following schedule:
