Utilivate’s Offers Pro-bono Services to Support
Chicago Energy Benchmarking Ordinance Compliance​
July 20, 2015

(Chicago) –Utilivate Technologies, LLC (Utilivate) announced today that it proudly completed pro-bono energy benchmarking verification services to help qualifying organizations, with demonstrated financial need, comply with the recently enacted Chicago Energy Benchmarking ordinance.

In September 2013, the City of Chicago adopted the ordinance to raise the awareness of energy performance with the hopes to identify practical energy and cost savings opportunities.  The ordinance supports a key element of Sustainable Chicago 2015, a three-year action agenda to make Chicago "...more livable, competitive, and sustainable."

The ordinance calls on existing municipal, commercial buildings between 50,000 and 250,000 square feet, and residential buildings 250,000 square feet or larger to track whole-building energy usage, verify data accuracy, and report information to the City of Chicago by August 1, 2015.

To ensure that data verification is not a barrier to ordinance compliance, a coalition of Chicago professional organizations is offering pro-bono data verification to qualifying buildings with demonstrated financial need.   Utilivate Technologies, an approved Chicago Energy Benchmarking Service Provider, is working directly with U.S. Green Building Council Illinois Chapter (USGBC – IL) and other groups to identify qualifying organizations and perform its pro-bono verification services.

Walter Roberson, Energy Engineer, is spearheading Utilivate’s energy benchmarking and verification service.  Roberson stated, “We are excited to offer this pro-bono service to targeted organizations to help eliminate cost as a barrier to compliance with the Chicago Energy Benchmarking ordinance.”  Marlon McClinton, President & CEO of Utilivate Technologies, added, “Our team of credentialed energy management professionals, including licensed professional engineers, stands ready to help all commercial and residential building owners and managers implement a cost-effective, streamlined process to full compliance with the Chicago Energy Benchmarking ordinance.”
