Include energy efficiency in your multifamily construction and renovation plans

There's never a better time to think about energy efficiency than when a building is being designed or before major renovation begins. Including energy efficient products in your plans can help save residents money on their electric bills and increase their comfort.

Install energy efficient products from our recommended list or choose your own features as long as your building exceeds the program standards when tested. A member of our team will work with you during construction to ensure help is available throughout the process.

For those projects that do not meet the prescribed measures, it is possible to participate using the program's performance path. The performance path requires the hiring of a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rater to evaluate the building's performance and assign a score. If the score meets the minimum standards for the program, a rebate may be awarded.

When a participating community is accepted into the program, funding for its participation is earmarked and set aside. Should the program become oversubscribed and program funding exhausted, we will notify communities before they are enrolled and add them to a waiting list. Any community put on a waiting list will be notified, in the order received, when additional funding is available and approval granted for participation.

Energy Saving Upgrades


 

Proven energy-saving upgrades can save residents money and reduce vacancy rates. For example, new air conditioners and heat pumps can be up to twice as efficient as those installed 15 years ago. And when you consider summer cooling costs in Arizona can account for up to 45% of your annual bill, that's a lot of savings.
