Maximize Multifamily Property Revenues with Energy Improvement Projects

Thursday, Feb. 7 from 11:00 – 11:40 am

There are many factors to consider when adding energy efficiency measures and/or solar into a rehab/retrofit project for multifamily housing, and the source of funding is always a concern. Thankfully, there are simple financing solutions that recognize the return on investment for implementing these measures in housing projects. This webinar will outline the funding process and present case studies of completed projects that are reaping the benefits of reduced energy and maintenance expenses, improved cash flows, and enhanced resident health/safety.
