Incentive/Summary The city of Memphis adopted an ordinance i …
The city of Memphis adopted an ordinance in spring 2009 to improve the energy efficiency of the rental housing stock throughout the city. The ordinance establishes minimum energy efficiency standards that must be met in rental housing when the tenants pay the utility bills. Specifically, the ordinance requires that the building envelope of a residential unit have acceptable windows, sealing, weather stripping, and sufficient insulation. It requires functional heating and cooling equipment and installation as well as leak-free plumbing. The ordinance authorizes the Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division (MLGW) Utility to inspect rental units upon the request of the tenant and/or to inspect rental units with ''excessive utility consumption'' as defined in the ordinance. MLGW works with the landlord as an advocate for the tenants, and is authorized to charge building owners an inspection fee in the event that the owner is found to be in violation of the code in any of their 60,000+ rental units. MLGW is also authorized to issue code violation citations, thereby requiring the owner of the rental unit to make required energy efficiency upgrades. Since 2009, MLGW has inspected more than 550 rental properties. All landlords have complied and brought their properties up to required standards.
