Affordable multifamily housing units
The affordable housing shortage forces people to make impossible financial choices and causes harm to their health and well-being.
Our approaches improve health, safety, and resilience while building community wealth. We facilitate energy efficiency and renewable upgrades to make occupants more comfortable and save them money. Our new construction programs find energy savings and get buildings to near-zero energy.
Manufactured homes are built to HUD code standards, which have not been updated for more than 25 years. Energy efficiency programs are often inaccessible to manufactured homeowners due to high upfront costs, and many efficiency programs ignore manufactured homes altogether.
We provide technical support for retrofits that make clean energy solutions accessible and make the available homes safer and more comfortable. We understand the unique outreach opportunities in mobile home parks. Our expertise fills program knowledge gaps, improves comfort, and reduces energy costs for residents who need it most.
Weatherization improves home health and resilience
Weatherization lowers energy bills, improves home health and comfort, and helps put money back in the hands of people who need it. Our technical assistance, training, and quality assurance services give weatherization professionals the confidence they need to do impactful work. Our research proves the relationship between weatherization and positive health outcomes.
Financing for a Fair Clean Energy Future
Money is the largest barrier to program participation. Our financing programs help drive home energy retrofits for people with low and moderate incomes. We’ve proven that inclusive underwriting approaches bring the health and economic benefits of clean energy to more people. Let’s implement equitable finance solutions in your market.
Pay as You Save (PAYS): An inclusive, debt-free alternative for clean energy upgrades
Utilities invest in clean energy upgrades at a customer’s home or business. The customer’s project is qualified based on expected energy bill savings over a defined period. PAYS requires no credit check, no upfront payment, and no consumer debt and helps overcome the challenges that face typical energy efficiency programs.
