SmartRegs is a program through the City of Boulder that requires rental property owners to have a certain level of energy efficiency in their property.  It was implemented in 2011 and all licensed rental properties had to comply by Dec. 31, 2018. If people are seeking a new rental license in 2019 or after, they need to prove SmartRegs compliance as part of the rental license application process. Property owners can comply with the energy efficiency requirements by following one of two pathways to compliance. They can use either the prescriptive path or the performance path.

The rental licenses for all licensed rental properties that did not pass a SmartRegs inspection before the end of 2018 expired on Dec. 31, 2018. Until the property reaches SmartRegs compliance, you will not be able to receive or renew a rental license at the start of 2019 and beyond. The discovery of an unlicensed rental property will result in legal action.
