Supporting energy benchmarking in Philadelphia


The City of Philadelphia requires all commercial and multifamily buildings over 50,000 square feet to report their annual energy and water consumption.   Using the U.S. EPA’s Portfolio Manager tool, impacted buildings must submit the previous year’s energy and water use by June 30th of each year.  

In Philadelphia, more than 60 percent of citywide greenhouse gas emissions stem from building-energy use.  Benchmarking is a critical tool, helping building owners and managers in Philadelphia better understand their usage, drive energy performance improvements and mitigate climate change.  Learn more about the Energy and Benchmarking Disclosure Law by visiting the city's website.  


To assist our steam customers in Philadelphia, we are offering a free service to help customers report their energy data quickly and accurately in accordance with the Philadelphia Benchmarking Ordinance. This optional service includes set-up and data exchange instructions in EPA Portfolio Manager for your steam service and requires mapping each meter to a unique identifier.  Get started today by downloading and completing the Automated Benchmarking Request Form and return it to us via mail or email.
