Assembly Bill 1103 (Saldaņa)

This recently passed bill (now Public Resources Code Section 25402.10) requires electric or gas utilities to maintain energy consumption data for non-residential buildings for at least the most recent 12 months in a format that is compatible for uploading to the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Energy Star Portfolio Manager program. Effective January 1, 2009, the utilities, upon written or electronic authorization from the owner/operator, must upload all of the data for a building to the Energy Star Portfolio Manager in a manner that preserves the confidentiality of the customer. Effective January 1, 2010 non-residential building owners must disclose to prospective buyers and lenders the EPA's Energy Star Portfolio Manager data and scores for a building that is being sold, leased, financed or refinanced. This bill's provisions apply to both investor-owned and municipal utilities.
