  1. Residential Energy Conservation Ordinance Inspection Fees

The Energy Office in the Housing Department is proposing a fee increase for energy inspections and re-inspections for all residential and live-work units sold or transferred in Berkeley as covered by the existing Residential Energy Conservation Ordinance Berkeley Municipal Code (BMC) 19.16.

 

The proposed fee structure includes a re-inspection fee for units that have failed the initial inspection and require a re-inspection to ensure compliance with the ordinance.

 

The proposed fee structure is a follows:

 

Service Provided

 

Current Fee

Proposed First Unit Cost

Each Additional Unit Cost

Initial Inspection

Single Family Dwelling

$45

$100

NA

 

Two or more unit building

$5 per additional unit

$100

$25

Re-Inspection

Single Family Dwelling

$25

$50

NA

 

Two or more unit building

This fee increase would cover the costs of the contractor who will provide the inspection as a service to the City of Berkeley for a complete energy audit, including attic insulation, hot water pipe insulation, fireplace damper, furnace duct leak detection and insulation, door weather stripping, low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators, low-flow toilets, water heater insulating blanket, and energy-efficient lighting in common areas of multi-family units.
