Large Commercial Buildings in Minneapolis to Report Energy and Water Use: from @ecmweb #sustainable

minneapolis

Beginning in 2014, large commercial buildings in Minneapolis must report energy and water use annually  to comply with a new ordinance city leaders approved recently intended to increase energy awareness. The ordinance is a tool that uses market forces, rather than performance or design mandates, to motivate owners and tenants to invest in efficiency improvements, ultimately saving energy, lowering energy costs, reducing pollution and spurring local green jobs.
