The data must be kept in a format compatible for upload to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager.

On and after January 1, 2010, the owner or operator of a building must disclose the energy consumption data for the most recent 12 months to any prospective:

  • buyer;
  • lessee of the entire building; or
  • lender financing the entire building.

Once this disclosure is made, no additional information regarding the building’s energy consumption data needs to be given to the prospective buyer, lessee, or lender.
