SmartRegs Program Progress
SmartRegs Program Progress to Goal
A rental housing energy efficiency policy was first identified in the city’s first Climate Action Plan (CAP). This concept became the city’s SmartRegs program that requires licensed rental properties to achieve a basic level of energy efficiency standard. It was adopted by City Council in 2010, implemented in 2011 and all licensed rental properties had to comply by Dec. 31, 2018. If people are seeking a new rental license in 2019 or after, they need to prove SmartRegs compliance as part of the rental license application process.
Through the eight-year compliance timeline, approximately 23,000 rental units had to achieve SmartRegs compliance by its Dec. 31, 2018 deadline. In early January 2019, the city will post the program’s accomplishments to date. See below for the most current progress dashboard-
