Can I apply for ENERGY STAR certification for a multi-use building? Follow

Yes, as long as 75% of the property's Gross Floor Area (GFA) is comprised of property types that are eligible for an ENERGY STAR score. And at least one property type (that is eligible for certification) is more than 50% of the GFA (excluding parking).

Examples:

  • A property with an Office (60%) and Hotel (40%) is eligible for certification because both property types can earn a score, and Office is more than 50%.
  • A property with an Office (60%) and Movie Theater (40%) is NOT eligible for certification because it doesn't meet the 75% minimum requirement (Movie Theater cannot get a score). 
  • A property with an Office (60%) and Hotel (25%) and Movie Theater (15%) is eligible for certification because it meets the 75% minimum requirement, and Office is more than 50%.
