The basics of the mandatory energy audits for multi-family properties:
The Energy Conservation Audit and Disclosure (ECAD) ordinance requires Austin multifamily properties that receive electricity from Austin Energy to have an energy audit by June 1, 2011.
Certain multifamily properties may be exempt from the City of Austin energy audit requirement if they meet certain conditions. The multifamily property does not need an Austin Energy energy audit if it meets one of the following:
- The property is less than 10 years old on June 1, 2009
- The owner has completed comprehensive duct remediation work through the Austin Energy rebate offering within 10 years before June 1, 2009
- The owner has replaced air conditioning equipment for all units through the Austin Energy rebate offering within 10 years before June 1, 2009
The ECAD ordinance defines a multifamily property as a property with five or more dwelling units.
