More Money for Multifamily Properties

CORE will now fund 50% of project costs up to $50,000 for multifamily properties for energy efficiency projects started this year. These projects must be on our Path to Zero and will cut carbon emissions, lower utility bills, and make your space more comfortable. Whether you are a property manager looking for funding for building improvements or a part of the homeowners association that is interested in energy upgrades for the whole building, CORE is here to help.

It starts with a commercial walkthrough from Mike Bouchet, CORE’s Commercial Program Manager. He will look at common areas and the building as a whole to determine the most impactful energy improvements for the space. 

Here is a list of some big projects that could benefit the whole building’s energy usage and would apply to this funding. 

  • Switching from an old boiler to a new heat pump or heat pump water heater for shared heating systems. 
  • Changing old light bulbs to LEDs for common spaces or outdoor lighting. 
  • Air sealing and insulating for the whole building, common spaces, or the roof. 
  • Add heat tape and heat tape timers to the roof to prevent snow and ice build-up. Timers are important because heat tape does not need to run at all times!
  • Pipe wrap and a boiler insulating blanket to prevent heat loss.
  • Adding solar + storage for the whole building. 
  • Adding EV chargers. If you are improving your shared parking lot, adding an EV charger is a great move. 

Renters or owners can get involved too! If you are a resident interested in a project for your whole building, put us in touch with your HOA and we are happy to connect. 

As a renter or owner, if you qualify for CORE’s Income Qualified program, you can get a free assessment and double rebates. See if you qualify here

This funding exists on a first-come, first-served basis, for work done to the building or common spaces, and must be invoiced before 2023. Sign up below to get started today!
