Investments in water and energy efficiency can reduce operating costs and boost cash flow across your portfolio of multifamily affordable housing properties. Developers, owners, and others from across the Chicago region gathered on September 29 to find out how. NH&RA’s Preservation Through Energy Efficiency Road Show explored the knowledge, tools, and connections you need to conduct water and energy retrofits on your properties. In addition to the resources provided at the event, PTEE Road Show attendees now have access to a private social networking tool where they can ask questions, share experiences and learn from their fellow attendees and faculty on energy and utility efficiency initiatives.
