Washington Clean Buildings

On May 7, 2019, the Clean Buildings bill (Chapter 285, laws of 2019) was signed into law to lower costs and pollution from fossil fuel consumption in the state’s existing buildings, especially large commercial buildings. The law requires the Washington State Department of Commerce to develop and implement an energy performance standard for these buildings and provide incentives to encourage efficiency improvements. 

The information provided here will assist businesses in developing a plan to meet their required Energy Use Intensity (EUI).  Please visit the Washington State Department of Commerce for complete details and current information.
