DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and DOEE recently announced the formation of District Buying Power. This citywide energy buying group allows every industrial, commercial, and multifamily building to receive the advantages of bulk energy purchasing. Read the official press release here. As an additional benefit for enrolling with District Buying Power, Albireo Energy* is offering DC benchmarking reporting (typically a $500 per building annual charge), for a limited time at no cost.
To avoid any penalties, District Buying Power and DOEE want to ensure that you have the information and assistance you need to comply with these requirements. It is important to act now so as to provide District Buying Power sufficient time to setup your accounts, collect applicable data, and prepare the submissions.
For buildings in the 10-25,000 square foot range, District Buying Power will begin submitting your data early in 2022 to ensure that you are on a good path towards compliance before it is legally required.
Enrollment is simple. Fill out the online enrollment form and our friendly staff will reach out with further details. If you have any questions or would prefer to discuss enrollment with our staff, please reach complete our contact form or call us at 855-521-8780. With questions or concerns about program validity, please contact the DOEE Benchmarking Help Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Albireo Energy was chosen under a 2019 Request for Proposal to administer the program based on its unique suite of services and its considerable experience. Albireo Energy also runs Boston Buying Power and Philly Buying Power, city-endorsed programs that have been successfully operating for over a decade.
