SCOTUS Backs Property Rights and Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings Action Plan

SCOTUS Backs Property Rights

In a decision that will affect a wide range of land-use regulations, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Florida property owner was unfairly required to compensate in exchange for the ability to develop property in the case known as Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management Agency. The case examined the extent to which a local government can place conditions on the issuance of land use permits.

AB 758 - Comprehensive Energy Efficiency in Existing Commercial Buildings

The next major step in the AB 758 Regulatory Process is underway and BOMA members have an opportunity to provide input and guide California policy that will have an impact on you and your tenant's business.  This is an issue BOMA California has been working on for several years now, in collaboration with the Energy Commission, green energy groups, and other stakeholders – its a regulatory plan that is being written to tackle energy efficiency in existing commercial buildings.

Once the draft action plan is finalized, the strategies – both voluntary and mandatory – will be translated into regulatory language and moved forward for adoption.  As such, it's important to assure that what is contained in the final document makes sense from both a technological and economic standpoint.  BOMA California wants to make sure that regulatory red tape is kept to a minimum to avoid unnecessary paperwork.

Draft Action Plan for the Comprehensive Energy Efficiency Program for Existing Buildings

Please have your energy experts and people involved in leasing and real estate transactions. Energy efficiency strategies are important, but so are the triggers used by the state to enforce any mandates. Provide any feedback you may have to
