Building Energy Benchmarking Law: Covered Buildings

Under the Benchmarking Law, a "Covered building" is a nonresidential building, or any group of nonresidential buildings that have the same parcel/property identification number, located within Montgomery County that have a certain level of occupancy and function. If a building falls into one of the following Covered building categories, the building(s) must be benchmarked:

A single building that has a gross square footage of 50,000 or greater. Multiple buildings (e.g., a complex) that share a single Parcel Identification Number (e.g., Tax ID or property parcel) that have a combined gross square footage of 50,000 or greater.
