HEA Launches Local Law 97 Services and Strategies to Help Building Owners Mitigate Their Fines

October, 21, 2020 at 02:00

We are pleased to announce a new service offering aimed at helping building owners mitigate their Local Law 97 (LL97) fines. LL97 sets limits to the emission intensity allowed for approximately 57,000 buildings in New York City that have over 25,000 square feet of floor space across 10 building occupancy categories.

“The vast majority of building owners in New York City are finding themselves having to navigate a seemingly ever-increasing number of onerous laws intended to reduce a building’s energy use and the associated environmental impact.” said Colin Miler, Senior Engineer. “This holds true for Local Law 97, which has been designed to be the enforcement mechanism of New York City’s Climate Mobilization Act. On its face, it may seem to be an inescapable and draconian law; however, once you understand its nuances, the steps in overcoming this challenge become much less daunting.”

Fines under LL97 are substantially more severe than those of other similar local laws; therefore, a long-term energy and carbon reduction strategy is a valuable investment. HEA can help create a tailored approach unique to a building’s needs and identify the options available to reduce energy, GHG emissions and the associated Local Law 97 fines.
