Summary

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors established design standards for county facilities and property. Among other requirements, the policy requires that all new county buildings or major building renovations obtain U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Building Certification. Renovations of over 5,000 square feet are considered major renovations. New buildings and major renovations must also incorporate a computerized energy management that complies with the USGBC LEED Credit EA 5 - Measurement and Verification certification requirements.

New buildings of larger than 5,000 square feet must incorporate on-site renewable energy that will provide for at least 2.5% of its annual energy consumption. In addition, such buildings must also be constructed so that photovoltaic installations are possible.
