Just as a household may track a financial budget, set goals, see progress over time, and make comparisons, owners of a building can similarly track its energy performance through what is called, benchmarking. The City of Bloomington is exploring the adoption of a Large Building Benchmarking Program that would require large commercial, multifamily, and public buildings to be benchmarked annually.

The program aims to address the City’s community development and climate goals by helping businesses understand the energy efficiency of their buildings to both control energy costs and reduce associated greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more about the proposed program, complete the survey below, leave a question and/or join as at an upcoming listening session on the topic.

  • This survey will take about five minutes to complete. It has ten questions. The survey is intended to gather feedback from owners and managers of 75,000+ sq ft Bloomington commercial, multifamily, and public buildings. The City will use the information to understand energy benchmarking practices and determine resources to help large buildings implement energy efficiency projects.
