Setting the tone for energy efficiency in multifamily buildings

A benchmarking system to measure electricity and water usage will be implemented in Kansas City's apartment industry

The City Council of Kansas City recently passed an energy empowerment ordinance to help cut down costs and improve the energy efficiency of multifamily homes throughout the city. Buildings that are 10,000 square feet or larger are required to have benchmarks and regular reports in regards to its energy and water usage by property managers and tenants.
