Rules Are Now Available for the Kansas City Energy Empowerment Ordinance

Effective May 5, 2016, Rules for the Energy Empowerment Ordinance are available to be used for guidance on how to comply with the benchmarking policy requirements. The Rules provide guidance on topics including definitions; covered buildings; compliance schedule; benchmarking and reporting requirements; maintenance of records; exemptions; and enforcement.

In Kansas City, the City Council is the legislative body that adopts broad mandates and then agencies responsible for implementation develop rules that provide details on how to carry out implementation. The Rules for the Energy Empowerment Ordinance were developed by city staff with stakeholder input from the City Energy Project Advisory Committee, a committee comprised of appointed members representing local industries, businesses and nonprofits, co-chaired by Councilman Scott Taylor.
