All GRRP Comprehensive and Leading Edge participants will be required to perform energy and water benchmarking in EPA's portfolio Manager to understand utility consumption before and after retrofits. Comprehensive cohort applicants can benchmark as part of their application submission. Owners may find the resources below useful, though they are not required to use them. Additional benchmarking resources are linked below from EPA's Portfolio Manager resource library.
