EnergizeCT Contractor Success Story
The eight buildings that make up Meadowbrook Apartments in Ellington, Connecticut received a welcome energy efficiency upgrade in the summer of 2016. The 140 one-bedroom units received air sealing, water efficiency measures, upgraded in-unit and common area LED lighting, and new heat pump hot water heaters under the EnergizeCT Multi Family Initiative – Income Eligible program.
The project was wholly managed by Energy Efficiencies Solutions of Windsor, Connecticut, a full-service female minority-owned energy services contractor, and winner of the 2013 U.S. Department of Energy Home Performance with Energy Star Contractor of the Year award. EES adhered to strict BPI Multi-Family Standards to develop the project, much to the approval of Mark of Harvest Properties, owners of Meadowbrook, who couldn’t be happier with the project and the team at Energy Efficiencies Solutions;
“The process was excellent. EES explained the possible comprehensive upgrades and incentives as well financing options and return in investment data. All I had to do was choose which upgrades we were going to complete and pay my copay. EES managed all the contractors and notified my building managers of the process and install dates. We are going to upgrade all our buildings.” – Mark, Harvest Properties
Total estimated lifetime savings for this project reached nearly 4.5 million kWh, a substantial savings for both the property owner and the individual tenants. Incentives through EnergizeCT supported 75% of the cost of the upgrades, including no-cost to the tenants directly.
