Why You Should Choose VertPro® to Streamline EBEWE Compliance?

VertPro® to Streamline EBEWE Compliance


When it comes to regulatory compliance, particularly regarding environmental benchmarks, businesses encounter a plethora of challenges. The Energy Benchmarking and Water Efficiency (EBEWE) ordinance is a prime example of such a regulation that, while beneficial for the environment and public welfare, can present a significant administrative burden to property owners. In Los Angeles, the EBEWE ordinance requires the annual submission of detailed reports on energy and water usage, incentivizing sustainable practices but often requiring a considerable investment of time and resources. 

Navigating the complexities of EBEWE compliance requires a meticulous approach to energy and water usage data collection, reporting, and management. It’s not just about meeting legal requirements; it’s about embodying the spirit of conservation and efficiency that the ordinance seeks to promote. Yet, rising to this challenge doesn’t have to be a solitary struggle. This is where VertPro® emerges as the ally businesses need. 

VertPro® is no stranger to streamlining complex processes. Initially, it provided a platform for commercial property owners and general contractors to solicit bids effortlessly, manage multiple projects, and ensure contractor quality. With VertPro® Upgrades, this platform evolves to specifically address the intricacies of EBEWE compliance, integrating new tools and features that can seamlessly guide users through each step of the compliance process.

Understanding EBEWE Compliance

EBEWE compliance is not merely about ticking boxes and filing reports; it’s a commitment to energy efficiency and sustainable practices that can lead to significant savings and environmental impact. However, achieving compliance involves painstakingly gathering data, accurately benchmarking energy and water usage, and ensuring that all this information is correctly reported according to the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager’s requirements. The process can be overwhelming, especially for properties with extensive portfolios or limited administrative support. 

The difficulties businesses may face include inconsistent data collection methods, complexity in understanding the ENERGY STAR scoring system, and the sheer administrative load of managing multiple properties. The risk of non-compliance, whether through missed deadlines or inaccurate reporting, can result in stiff penalties, not to mention the reputational damage a company might face as a result. 

In a world where businesses are increasingly held accountable for their environmental impact, the need for an efficient, reliable solution becomes paramount. EBEWE compliance isn’t just a regulatory hurdle—it’s an opportunity to align with broader sustainability goals and demonstrate leadership in energy and water conservation.
