What is Fannie Mae's Green Measurement and Verification Service?

Fannie Mae has implemented a service for our Borrowers and Lenders to streamline and simplify the annual reporting of energy and water performance data. Fannie Mae has engaged a service provider, Bright Power, to provide Measurement and Verification Services related to Fannie Mae Multifamily Green Mortgage Loans to assist Lenders and Borrowers in measuring annual energy and water performance. For more information, please refer to the Fannie Mae Green Measurement and Verification Service FAQs – Green Mortgage Loan Borrowers.

ENERGY STAR® Score and EPA Water Score for Multifamily

To help multifamily properties reduce energy and water costs, Fannie Mae Multifamily partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to create the 1 to 100 ENERGY STAR Score for Multifamily and the 1 to 100 EPA Water Score for Multifamily. As a result of Fannie Mae's 2012 nationwide survey of over 1,000 multifamily properties, the US EPA launched the ENERGY STAR Score for Multifamily in September 2014. The launch of the EPA Water Score for Multifamily followed in October 2017.

For properties financed with a Green Rewards Mortgage Loan, a Green Preservation Plus Mortgage Loan, or a Mortgage Loan secured by a property with an eligible Green Building Certification Pricing, Fannie Mae has contracted with Bright Power to facilitate the collection of the data and to provide additional value to you in managing your property.
