How does the program work?

1

Make your buildings more comfortable

Energy-efficient upgrades go beyond cost savings. 

For example, by draft proofing and upgrading insulation, you can:

  • • Make your tenants’ homes warmer

  • • Cut down on dust

  • • Reduce indoor moisture

  • • Help block out outside noise.


Using less electricity will make it easier to manage your electricity costs and your tenants will live in a more comfortable dwelling.

By eliminating gaps, cracks and holes that let cold air into a home in winter and warm air in the summer, you can:
1

Make the home warmer for your tenants

2

Cut down on dust
 
 

3

Reduce inside moisture
 

4

Help block outside noise
 

Switching to energy-efficiency:

Switching to energy-efficient light bulbs or using power bars, low-flow showerheads or programmable thermostats can help reduce electricity demand.
