Energy Benchmarking

Benchmarking data for the 2021 calendar year is due by July 1st, 2022.

Seattle's Energy Benchmarking Law (Seattle Municipal Code 22.920) requires owners of non-residential and multifamily buildings (20,000 square feet or larger) to track energy performance and annually report to the City of Seattle. 

The City of Seattle annually publishes building energy performance data from more than 3500 of Seattle's largest commercial and residential buildings representing 375 million square feet at data.seattle.gov and through a data visualization site to facilitate transparency in the market and spur demand for energy efficiency.

**Impact to Puget Sound Energy Customers**

**Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is currently implementing a phased roll out for their new EnergyCAP® tool, a utility reporting platform that will replace MyData.

Customers impacted during extended implementation of the new tool are existing PSE customers who have MyData accounts being migrated to EnergyCAP®, and PSE customers who need to set-up first time enrollment of automated data uploads to ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager.

In response to PSE’s extended blackout period, Seattle’s benchmarking enforcement grace period has been extended an additional 90 days. Building owners now have until January 2, 2023 to submit 2021 annual benchmark reports to avoid penalties. Contact PSE directly at energycap@pse.com for urgent data needs or questions on enrolling or accessing the new tool.**
