Am I penalized (or credited) based on the energy efficiency of the fuels used by my utility? Follow

No, your property’s Score and other metrics are not penalized (or credited) by the efficiency of your utility. EPA uses national conversion factors for each fuel type to convert Site Energy into Source Energy to ensures that no building will be penalized (or credited) due to the efficiency of its utility provider. (See: What are the Site-to-Source Conversion Factors?)

To better understand the different between site and source energy see our webpage on the difference between source and site energy.
