Seattle Building Tune-Ups

Seattle Building Tune-Ups is a progressive energy efficiency policy that helps building owners identify smart, responsible ways to reduce energy and water costs. Like cars and bikes, all buildings need to be tuned regularly to keep them running as efficiently as possible. Through tune-ups, building owners find operational efficiencies and low- and no-cost fixes that improve building performance and on average reduce building energy use 10- 15%.


Final Rule for Seattle Building Tune-Ups Requirement 

OSE is pleased to issue OSE Director's Rule 2016-01 which implements the Seattle Building Tune-Ups Ordinance adopted in March 2016. The Director's Rule further explains the Tune-Ups requirement, and is the result of more than a year of collaboration with stakeholders to make this new policy clear and workable, with a focus on saving energy and flexibility for building owners. OSE thanks the Tune-Ups Technical Working Group and the dozens of other building owners, managers and energy management experts who helped shape these requirements.
