BPI Recognized By Florida

BPI May Now Provide Building Energy Ratings in the State

July 29, 2013

MALTA, N.Y. — Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI) announced the group will be recognized by the state of Florida to provide a building energy-efficiency rating system in the state.

SB 269 was signed into law by Florida Gov. Rick Scott, with the legislation redefining the structure of the building energy-efficiency system, ratings, and the credentialing options available to professionals providing energy evaluations
in Florida.

“BPI is proud to be recognized by the state of Florida as a partner in the state’s advancement of energy efficiency,” said Larry Zarker, BPI CEO. “This new opportunity will make it possible for BPI’s growing professional network to ensure that the citizens of Florida benefit from the industry leading standards that BPI has developed to ensure the health, safety, and energy savings of families across the country.”

Details about how BPI will manage the building energy-efficiency rating system, including certification and software requirements, are still in the development phase. Discussions are being held with state agencies and interested stakeholders to determine what is required of BPI to best support its certified professionals and consumers in Florida. BPI test centers are preparing to offer additional training and examination resources to support auditors, raters, and contractors in Florida who are seeking BPI certifications.
