<b>SB 2030 Standard</b><br>24 pounds CO2e/sf/year <b>As Designed</b><br>22.05 pounds CO2e/sf/year
The greenhouse gas emissions associated with the project’s annual energy use are calculated in pounds of carbon dioxide equivalents per square foot per year (lbs CO2e/sf/year). It shows the project-specific SB 2030 Carbon Standard, the predicted carbon emissions from the fuel mixture specified in the project’s energy model, and the actual annual carbon emissions calculated from meter readings (if available).
