Multifamily Building Solutions Network

Expand your client base—and your profit margins—by joining the Multifamily Building Solutions Network.

As a Multifamily Building Solutions Provider, you can turn your energy efficiency expertise into more leads, bigger projects, and greater business success. Providers are a go-to resource for building owners and facility managers to help understand how energy efficiency can help solve building problems, and how to fold upgrades into a building improvement plan.


Multifamily Building Solutions Providers enjoy a number of business-building benefits:

Small and large-scale projects. Your customers can access incentives to install individual upgrades, or complete fully customized whole-building plans, giving you the flexibility to recommend the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions to any building problem. Multifamily Building Solutions Providers have exclusive access to the Multifamily Performance Program Comprehensive Option incentives for their multifamily clients.

Enhanced reputability. The Multifamily Building Solutions Network is recognized by both peers and prospects as industry leaders that are committed to a high standard of quality and sustainability—making you stand out against your competition.

Direct access to leads. Providers are highly visible to a steady stream of prospects and have the ability to capture leads through NYSERDA.

Proactive solutions. Impact customers’ businesses beyond just energy savings with proactive solutions that make their buildings more comfortable, more compliant, and more valuable on the resale market.

Unique training opportunities. Build your technician’s skills through NYSERDA training—with some programs that are offered for free and others offered at a reduced-cost.

Access to resources. Tap into a broad knowledge base and best practices through NYSERDA. Multifamily Building Solutions Providers can utilize NYSERDA’s Energy Use Snapshot service that provides weather-normalized energy baselines for your multifamily clients. The Snapshot saves you time and money by utilizing NYSERDA to access data straight from the utility, and using it to generate a ready-made, weather-normalized usage report.
