What is AB 1103 and who is required to comply?
Assembly Bill 1103, or the Nonresidential Building Energy Use Disclosure Program, requires non-residential business owners of California to generate an energy efficiency rating for the building. All non-residential business owners must comply with the terms of AB 1103 in order to sell, lease, finance or refinance a building.
This bill was passed to encourage greater energy efficiency in California nonresidential buildings by requiring building owners to disclose energy use to prospective buyers, lessees, and lenders, as well as to the California Energy Commission. This statewide program applies in addition to benchmarking and disclosure programs already in place and under development in local jurisdictions.
