Montgomery County has proposed a bill on Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS). This would require existing commercial buildings to reduce their energy use or face fines. D.C. has already passed BEPS, as has NYC. MC-FACS has begun lobbying our County Council ahead of the July 20th hearing. If you are interested in learning more, please email Walter Weiss.
