Turn local law compliance into cost savings with NYC Accelerator

Building owners: don’t miss out on free help with Local Law 97

Buildings are the source of nearly 70% of New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions, which come from the fossil fuels used to heat, cool, and power most buildings. As part of landmark climate legislation, Local Law 97 (LL97) aims to combat and reduce these emissions with the goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. It sets emission targets for buildings over 25,000 gross square feet, which may face fines if they exceed annual limits past the 2024 deadline. Buildings that exceed their annual emissions limits will face a financial penalty of $268 per ton of CO2 equivalent over the limit.

Many buildings are currently not on track to meet compliance, and deadlines are approaching quickly. NYC Accelerator offers free assistance with energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades. The program will help you cut building emissions and energy costs, create a pathway to comply with LL97 on time, and avoid annual fines. NYC Accelerator’s team of experts provides free support through:
