I will assume most are aware that Portfolio Manager has suspended applications for Energy Star Certification from September 2018 until early 2019. As a requirement for EAc1 to be earned, the submission of an Energy Star Score (if the building is eligible (which it always has been) is necessary. With our project having to submit by February 10, 2019, I have concerns about not being able to provide an ES Score. What is GBCI doing for all of the projects that have Performance Periods ending since October 2018 to potentially February 2019 as this situation is out of our control? Would a verification (i.e.screenshot) of the current score be sufficient?
We used Energy Star Certification for our initial LEED submission (Gold) in 2014 and this is our Recertification, which is due by February 2019.
