Win Win: You save money. The world gets energy efficient buildings.

According to ENERGY STAR, a 10% decrease in energy use could lead to a 1.5% increase in net operating income. For example, in a 200,000-square foot building that pays $2 per square foot in energy costs, a 10% reduction in energy consumption can translate into an additional $40,000 of NOI. That could mean a potential asset value boost of $500,000!

Equally important, energy improvements reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Philadelphia Building Benchmarking Ordinance

The best time for energy efficiency planning? Right now. Designed to reduce citywide building energy use 10% by 2015, building energy benchmarking and disclosure is a key part of Philadelphia’s Greenworks plan.

Under this ordinance, commercial buildings over 50,000 sq.ft. will be required to disclose energy usage and water consumption by October of each year. The objective is to enable stakeholders to compare energy and water usage among comparable buildings.

That means there’s no better time to invest in building energy efficiency improvements. And remember, the EnergyWorks Loan Fund can help you maintain a competitive edge in this new, full disclosure marketplace. It’s a smart approach that incorporates building energy efficiency into your asset management strategy.
