More information to come on the audit submission process. Please check back after June, 2018 for detailed instructions on how to submit your building’s audit report.

Under the Commercial Buildings Energy Efficiency Ordinance, building owners are required to have an energy audit of their building conducted every ten years. In an energy audit, an approved professional will walk through your building and makes recommendations on how to improve your building’s efficiency and operations. You are free to choose which, if any, of those recommendations to implement; the point is to understand the potential for improvement and allow building owners to make informed business decisions.

Buildings whose ABID ends in an 8 December 31, 2018

*Audit submissions will be accepted starting July 1, 2018

Buildings whose ABID ends in a 7

The year in which an audit is required for your building is determined by your building’s randomly-assigned Atlanta Building ID number (ABID). The last digit of your ABID indicates the year in which an audit is required. For example, if your ABID ends with the number “6,” your building is required to have its audit performed in 2016, 2026, 2036, etc. Click here to look up your building’s ABID or email

Due to stakeholder request, the City postponed the 2017 audit requirement by a year, therefore buildings whose ABID ends in a 7 must also submit an audit in 2018 in order to comply.
