Austin ECAD Services

Need energy consulting? Blue Ocean Energy Management offers Austin ECAD services to help building owners meet city compliance with the city of Austin.

The Energy Conservation Audit and Disclosure (ECAD) Ordinance (pdf) requires commercial building owners to benchmark and report their energy use rating by May 31st each year. The ordinance applies to commercial buildings 10,000 SF or larger that are located within the Austin city limits and receive electricity from Austin Energy.

Benchmarking your commercial building for its energy use not only helps you comply with the City’s ECAD ordinance, but it also helps you take key measures to reduce energy consumption. Your building’s energy rating may uncover opportunities to reduce its carbon footprint and save money.

The Austin ECAD Ordinance is a law similar to other energy ordinances in the nation and the world. Non-compliance with Austin ECAD is a Class C misdemeanor with fines from $500 to $2,000. Anyone may file violations with the City of Austin Municipal Courts for review and action.
