How to Submit 2021 Energy Performance Metrics in 2022

Depending on the size and location of your multifamily property, you may be required to benchmark by law. Benchmarking entails submitting your energy and water consumption and cost data to your city or state. If your property is in a city or state that requires benchmarking and the property has a Fannie Mae Loan, you are required to submit 2021 Energy Performance Metrics (EPMs) to Fannie Mae in 2022.

In 2022, properties in the following jurisdictions are required to:

  • Benchmark by law by submitting their 2021 energy and water cost and consumption data to cities
  • Submit their 2021 energy and water consumption and cost data to Fannie Mae
  • Green Mortgage Loans report to Fannie Mae through the Green Measurement and Verification Service and are not required to follow these requirements

Instructions are now available for How to Submit 2021 Energy Performance Metrics in 2022
