ACEEE’s newly released reportMore Savings for More Residents: Progress in Multifamily Housing Energy Efficiency, provides encouraging news for apartment and condo dwellers who want to reduce the cost of their energy bills.
Utility-sector energy efficiency programs that serve these buildings have nearly tripled their spending in recent years. While these programs still face challenges, many are expanding the products and services they offer to upgrade buildings.
