Design and Build for Efficiency
Are you planning to build a new facility or renovate an existing one? Integrating energy efficiency and renewable energy options early in the design process will maximize energy cost savings, building performance, comfort, and indoor air quality, and will allow your organization to focus more of its resources on its mission. We’re here to help you identify energy-saving opportunities and connect you with funding resources to make your project a model of efficiency.
Make energy efficiency a priority before you begin designing your new building or major renovation, or even before you specify new equipment. We provide incentives and technical assistance to help you design, build and choose equipment that will improve energy performance and enhance the value and comfort of your building. Renewable energy systems can also deliver significant energy savings over the life of your new building.
We recognize that many nonprofits operate on a tight budget. Our programs offer financial incentive strategies to help you offset these costs, so that you can concentrate on the rest of your work.
