BGE just launched a new platform called ENERGY STAR® Facilities that enables customers to benchmark their buildings or multifamily properties through BGE.com under the "My Account" tab. Benchmarking compares your building to similar businesses in a national database, providing an ENERGY STAR Score based on your building’s energy performance.
The new platform replaces the Automated Benchmarking Tool. Data on buildings you already benchmarked are stored in the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
This is the first of several steps to aggregate your energy usage for all occupants, businesses and retailers who reside in a building or campus-style setting. The system will aggregate your electric and/or gas usage for the last 12 months.
The ENERGY STAR Facilities app provides monthly energy consumption data automatically to Portfolio Manager to keep your account current for sustainability reporting or annual benchmarking requirements.
To access ENERGY STAR Facilities, visit your My Account login page at BGE.com. You'll need to sign in or register for "My Account" to see your energy data and receive recommendations for savings.
Please have the following information available if creating a new login:
- BGE account number
- The last 4 digits of the Business Tax ID number; or last the 4 digits of the primary account holder's Social Security Number
- If these are unavailable, please use the BGE PIN Tool available on the login page
To help manage and reduce your energy use, please update your facility information and select notifications for high energy alerts and weekly energy reports.
If you have questions regarding benchmarking, contact us at 410.290.1202.
Note: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA – HUD offer loan discounts for multifamily housing properties that have a benchmark score.
