Free Seminars Will Detail Incentives Available to Improve Energy Efficiency and Control Costs
August 15, 2013
To make it easier to undertake energy-efficiency projects in multifamily buildings, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding a seminar on September 25 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The free seminar 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). The seminar will be held at the Holiday Inn Downtown Buffalo, 620 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo.
A second seminar will be held the same day, from noon to 2:00 p.m., for contractors, builders, HVAC specialists and non-profit advocacy organizations interested in growing their businesses by becoming a Multifamily Performance Program (MPP) Partner.
MEPP features a variety of customizable energy-efficiency programs that make it easier and more affordable to upgrade multifamily buildings. The seminars will provide an overview of the technical assistance and incentives that are available, along with panel presentations by multifamily building experts who have already helped owners successfully implement energy efficiency and renewable energy initiatives at existing buildings and new construction projects.
Attendees at the free morning session will learn how to:
- Select the most appropriate path for implementing energy efficiency
- Qualify for cash-back incentives
- 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, healthier and sustainable.
Multifamily building owners, property managers, developers and members of condominium and co-op boards can register for these free seminars at nyserda.ny.gov/PowerEvents/Partners2013.
