Orlando building owners:

WegoWise can help you comply with the Building Energy & Water Efficiency Strategy, Ordinance 2016-64

What is Orlando Ordinance No. 2016-64?

Orlando Ordinance 2016-64 requires owners of large buildings to benchmark their building’s energy usage and report it to the City of Orlando. The City will then publish this data so that owners can see how each building compares to its peers.


Also known as City of Orlando’s Building Energy and Water Efficiency Strategy (BEWES), this law aims to track energy and water use efficiency in the City’s largest buildings to address waste issues from outdated and inefficient technology.

Does it impact me?

BEWES covers privately-owned buildings over 50,000 square feet and city-owned buildings over 10,000 square feet.

What are the deadlines?

BEWES requires building owners to report their energy usage annually via the ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager tool by May 1st.

What are the fines?

Buildings that do not comply with BEWES by the deadline will be publicly disclosed beginning in 2019 and may be charged a fine to be determined.

How do I comply?

Building owners must collect usage history from utility providers and report their energy usage data to EPA’s Portfolio Manager, a reporting tool that allows building owners to compare their building’s energy efficiency with similar buildings.

WegoWise provides Orlando building owners with hands-free compliance by interfacing with Portfolio Manager and completing all aspects of the reporting process. Fill out the form to get started with compliance!
