Missouri Regulations

Regulatory Update

Following the lead of many major U.S. cities, Kansas City passed its 2015 Energy Empowerment Ordinance with the goals of creating energy and water cost savings, drive a citywide reduction in energy and water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, and create jobs in the building energy efficiency improvement market.

Beginning in May 2017, many Kansas City businesses will be required to comply with the ordinance, which imposes mandatory energy & water benchmarking requirements on businesses occupying a minimum of 100,000 sq. ft. Those businesses operating between 50,000 sq. ft. and 100,000 sq. ft. must comply by May 2018. Those requirements follow reporting mandates on municipal buildings that went into effect May 1, 2016.
