Affordable multifamily buildings hold significant energy savings opportunities. Recognizing this potential, utilities are increasingly offering targeted energy efficiency programs designed to support building owners pursuing retrofits in these properties.

We also highlight successful programs, including individual utility programs, jointly administered programs, and ratepayer-funded state-administered programs.
