(B) Each state agency shall:

(1) Design and construct state funded facilities achieving the following minimum standards:

(a) New construction shall be designed so that the fossil-fuel, greenhouse gas emitting, energy consumption of the facility is reduced, as compared to the regional average for that building type as defined in CBECS, by the percentage specified as follows:

(i) Fifty per cent for designs completed on and after February 16, 2010;

(ii) Sixty-five per cent for designs completed on and after January 1, 2015;

(b) Renovation projects shall be designed so that the fossil-fuel, greenhouse gas emitting, energy consumption of the facility is reduced, as compared to the regional average for that building type as defined in CBECS, by fifty per cent.

(c) A state agency may apply for a waiver of compliance from the department of administrative services for the following reasons:

(i) The facility is less than five thousand square feet in area;

(ii) The facility does not consume energy for heating, ventilating, or air conditioning; or

(iii) The facility is not designed for human occupancy.

(2) Prior to constructing or renovating any facility five thousand square feet or greater, submit to the office of energy services a life cycle cost analysis that shall determine the reasonably expected costs of facility ownership, operation, maintenance, and disposal including labor and materials for the economic life of the state funded facility. Life cycle costs shall be expressed as an annual cost for each year of the facility's use and capitalization of the initial construction costs.

(3) Prior to leasing any facility twenty thousand square feet or greater within a given boundary, submit to the office of energy services an energy consumption analysis of the facilty's heating, refrigeration, cooling, lighting, hot water, and other major energy-consuming systems, components, and equipment for the term of the proposed lease.
