On August 26, 2018, EPA updated the score model for Retail Stores.
- The average Retail Store score went down by 16 points.*
- Two Use Details will no longer be required or used in the score calculation (these fields will still be available if you wish to track them and data you’ve already entered will be retained):
- Number of Computers
- Number of Cash Registers
*Because your buildings may differ from the typical building used in our analysis, the change in your building’s ENERGY STAR score will vary from the published average depending on its energy use, fuel mix, business activity, property type, and other variables. Furthermore, by definition, roughly half of buildings of any type should have larger decreases than average, and half should have smaller decreases.
