WT Group: Your Local Law 97 Partner

May 1, 2023

Complying with Local Law 97 (LL97) can be complex, and the impact varies significantly between buildings. This means that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach. It is essential to partner with a reputable company that understands LL97, is an expert in energy solutions, is fully versed in incentive programs, and can provide you with a supportive team to manage your project from start to finish.

Planning is vital to achieving compliance, and various factors will determine what preparations are necessary. Here are a few examples that must be considered:

  • The scale and timeline of the projected fines
  • The type, age, and complexity of the mechanical systems, lighting systems and envelope systems
  • Occupancy types
  • Ownership and lease structures
  • Capital plans  
  • Budgets
  • Recent renovations and improvements

Sometimes, a previously performed audit may provide a sufficient planning document. In others, a simple walk-through survey can identify enough opportunities to achieve compliance. Occasionally a building may require a more comprehensive or rigorous study to evaluate its options and the tradeoffs involved.

Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain compliance quickly and cost-effectively!

We combine expertise from various engineering, design, and energy management disciplines to meet and exceed even the most unique requirements. Our mission is to deliver a single, turnkey solution that covers all angles, from site evaluation to implementation with precision, pace, and passion.

LL97 will require property owners to invest in building upgrades to reduce emissions and meet compliance. We can work with you to develop a smart energy management strategy and evaluate energy-saving solutions that can benefit your property and tenants long-term, improving your bottom line by lowering operating expenses. 

Are financial incentives available? We are well-versed in rebates, incentives, and grant programs and believe that energy projects are excellent investments but become even more valuable when you take advantage of available rebates and incentives.

Partner with us, and you will receive expert advice on how LL97 impacts your building and how to minimize costs. We will provide you with education, energy efficiency audits, retrofit project management, energy supply procurement and brokerage, strategic consulting for long-term management, and technology assessments. Together, we will develop a sustainable long-term approach to meeting emission regulations with a substantial return on your investment.
