ALBANY --- To make it easier to start energy efficiency projects in multifamily buildings, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding a half-day seminar from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon on November 8. The event—held at the Hilton Garden Inn (1389 Washington Avenue) — will connect multifamily building owners, property managers, developers and board members of condominium and Co-op associations with NYSERDA experts and engineering resources to begin taking advantage of NYSERDA’s Multifamily Energy Performance Portfolio (MEPP).
Announced in July 2012, MEPP brings together all NYSERDA multifamily programs under one brand to provide more paths for implementing energy efficiency, as well as higher incentives than were previously available. The seminar will include an overview of available funding and technical assistance, along with panel presentations by multifamily building experts who have helped owners successfully implement energy efficiency and renewable energy initiatives at existing buildings and new construction projects.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Select the most appropriate path for implementing energy efficiency
- Qualify for cash-back incentives and low interest loans
- Become eligible for bonus incentives of up to $300 per apartment
- Decrease building energy use through submetering of electric billing
Properties that make energy efficiency upgrades can generally realize significant cost savings and offer residents units that are more comfortable, healthy and sustainable.
An afternoon seminar from 1:30PM to 4:00 PM also will be held for contractors, builders, HVAC specialists and non-profit advocacy organizations interested in growing their businesses by becoming a Multifamily Performance Program (MPP) Partner.
Multifamily building owners, property managers, developers, and members of condominium and Co-op boards can register for this free seminar at http://nyserdapowerevents.org/participants.
