To get started with our Direct Install program:

Program Description

The Income-Eligible Multi-Family (IEMF) program delivers energy savings to multi-family housing through incentives, installation measures and rebates.

Direct Install component (kits) benefit occupants and property/building managers/owners by installing energy-efficient items such as low-flow faucet aerators, low-flow shower heads, advanced power strips, hot water pipe insulation and LEDs. The program also provides incentives for upgrading in-unit and common area measures with either prescriptive or custom rebates. Resulting benefits could include increased property value, utility bill reduction, and making the property more comfortable, healthier and safer.
