The NJ Housing & Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA) and the Green Homes Office (GHO) are conducting Energy Benchmarking research on developments within NJHMFA's portfolio. By tracking utility bills for the multifamily developments that NJHMFA works with, we will be able to see how each building is performing compared to similar buildings in NJHMFA's portfolio and to those in other states.
The data collected through the Energy Benchmarking Initiative will be used to ultimately accomplish the following goals:
1. Identify properties that could benefit from energy efficiency upgrades;
2. Provide guidance for future energy efficiency program development;
3. Provide a basis for expected utility cost reduction achieved through energy efficiency and
renewable energy programs; and
4. Track the success of past energy upgrades, such as solar PV installations, ENERGY STAR® certification and
ARRA Stimulus Pilot Programs, etc.
Note: Participation by building owners/managers and tenants is mandatory for any developments receiving American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Stimulus Funding (e.g. MF Weatherization, MEEIP, MF Solar Funding Pilot, etc.)
The Release Forms found in the Related Documents section (to the right) provides access to energy usage data for the past two (2) years and for the following four (4) years. Property-specific and unit-specific details will be kept confidential. Property Managers, please fill out the Building Owner Utility Release Form and the Energy Benchmarking Survey Form - for each building. Please assist tenants in completing the Tenant Utility Release Form.
