Does a large parking garage preventing me from getting a score? Follow

Possibly. If you do NOT have a sub-meter on your parking garage and you are including the parking energy and parking Gross Floor Area (GFA) in your property's energy and GFA:

  • You will get a score as long as your parking GFA (Completely or Partially Enclosed) is 50% or less of the property's GFA. If your parking garage is greater than 50%, then you will need to start sub-metering its energy consumption so that you can exclude the parking energy and GFA, which will allow you to get a score and become eligible for certification.

If you ARE sub-metering your parking and excluding its energy (preferred), then you are eligible for certification as long as your Parking GFA (Completely or Partially Enclosed) is less than 75% of the Property GFA. If the parking GFA is greater than 75%, then EPA considers the property a Parking Garage and it is not eligible for certification.
