Building owners—with a leg up from enlightened power companies—can make a difference in their residents’ health and quality of life through energy efficiency upgrades, especially when it comes to multifamily affordable housing.
In places like Atlanta, which the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) says has the fourth largest energy burden in the nation, programs such as Georgia Power’s Energy Assessment and Solutions Program (EASP) help building owners and residents alike with cutting energy bills.
Take, for instance, Chisom Housing Group, a non-profit organization that helps expand affordable housing opportunities and improve residents’ homes and lives across the nation. Chisom exemplifies Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA)’s multi-pronged approach of preserving multifamily affordable housing programs by highlighting the importance of energy efficiency.
