Have in place energy meters that measure all energy use.
Track building’s energy use. Provide energy performance rating for most recent 12 months and annual summaries from preceding years. If energy performance rating for most recent 12 months does not meet minimum requirement, use average rating based on each year in recertification performance period.
We welcome and value the opinions of our green building community. We are collecting feedback on LEED v4 during the 5th open commenting period. At this time, each USGBC site user may comment on the open credits.
