    In January 2007 New York City’s Green City Buildings Act became effective. Under the law, most  non-residential building projects with estimated construction costs of $2 million or more had to achieve a LEED Silver or higher rating. Building projects costing more than $12 million and less than $30 million have to be designed and built in a way that reduces energy costs by a minimum of 20%. Those projects costing more than $30 million must reduce energy costs by a minimum of 25%.

    Those are some of the tenants of the law, but there are more, look at the link below.
