How to request Aggregated Building Consumption Data

Con Edison will begin processing requests for aggregated consumption data for calendar year 2014 on February 15, 2015. Any requests submitted prior to February 15th will not be processed and you will be required to resubmit.

To request 2014 aggregated consumption data from Con Edison please download and complete the Aggregated Consumption request form. Please make sure to select “Benchmarking Calendar Year” 2014 on your request form.  Once the form is completed, customers must login to Project Center and upload their request form(s).  Please follow the Project Center Upload Instruction Guide if you have not already registered within Project Center.  Additionally, all applicable Letters of Authorization (LOA) are to be sent in PDF format to citybenchmarking@coned.com. If you submitted a Con Edison LOA during a previous year and the building has not changed ownership you are not required to resubmit your Con Edison LOA. 

For further assistance with submitting requests, please view our webinar of the request process: http://engage.vevent.com/rt/consolidatededisonco~020514

Upon receipt of a valid LOA and successful upload of request application, an invoice will be sent via e-mail to the customer who initiated the request. Con Edison will provide customers with aggregated building data for both electric and gas consumption up to 24 months, at a fee of $102.50 per building. Once the invoice has been paid, Con Edison will e-mail the aggregated consumption data in an Excel spreadsheet within 15 days after the payment has been received.

Local Law 84 requires benchmarking to be completed by May 1 of each year. If you missed the May 1st deadline, you have the opportunity to comply before the next quarterly deadlines of August 1, November 1, and February 1. For more information on these compliance dates, please visit the NYC compliance website by selecting the following link: How to Comply.

About New York City Local Law 84

The City of New York in December 2009 passed a series of laws known as the "Greener Greater Buildings Plan" to improve energy and water efficiency of New York City's largest existing buildings. Local Law 84 is part of those laws and requires property owners to report on benchmarking the energy and water use of their buildings through an online tool called Portfolio Manager, which is maintained by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The benchmarking initiative requires all buildings larger than 50,000 square feet to benchmark their energy consumption annually by May 1st of each year.
