California Delays Energy Cost Disclosure Requirements

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill in October 2009 postponing the deadline for building owners to report energy information when they sell or lease a property. The bill delays the implementation of AB 1103, passed in 2007 and scheduled for full implementation on January 1, 2010 (see

EBN Oct. 2008).

The new bill, AB 531, has not done away with the requirements but put them on a delayed schedule yet to be determined by the California Energy Resources Conservation Commission. For more information, visit
