The years in which your property must obtain an energy audit corresponds to the last digit of the building’s ABID (Atlanta Building ID) number. For example, if your building’s ABID ends in a 5, this property will be required to have an audit in 2015, 2025, 2035, etc. Click here to look up your building’s ABID.

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.
