House Bill 1464 requires each state department with responsibilities for the design and construction of public buildings and facilities to benchmark every existing public building that is either larger than five thousand square feet or uses more than eight thousand kilowatt-hours of electricity or energy per year and shall use the benchmark as a basis for determining the State's investment in improving the efficiency of its own building stock. Benchmarking shall be conducted using the ENERGY STAR portfolio management or equivalent tool. The energy resources coordinator shall provide training to affected departments on the ENERGY STAR portfolio management or equivalent tool.
Additionally, public buildings must be retro-commissioned no less often than every five years.
