How to Submit 2019 Energy Performance Metrics in 2020

Depending on the size and location of your multifamily property, local law may require you to benchmark energy and water data for your property. Benchmarking entails submitting the energy and water consumption and cost data for your property to your city or state. If your property is in a jurisdiction listed below, you may be required to benchmark in 2020 for your property’s 2019 energy and water data. If your property is in a city or state that requires benchmarking and the property has a Fannie Mae Mortgage Loan, you are also required to submit 2019 Energy Performance Metrics (EPMs) to Fannie Mae in 2020.
