Affordable Multifamily Property Projects – East View Manor

The Energy Group recently installed free energy efficiency items at East View Manor, a senior, affordable multifamily property managed by the City of Des Moines. The energy saving items were provided and installed for free as part of the energy efficiency program for affordable multifamily housing.

The program, sponsored by Alliant Energy, Black Hills Energy and MidAmerican Energy Company, also offers enhanced rebates for energy efficient projects such as heating, cooling, windows, insulation, and additional lighting updates. Rebates can be as high as 40% for materials and labor. For some insulation projects, the rebate can be as high as 70% of materials and labor.

In addition, The Energy Group may be able to provide and install for free…

  • LED bulbs in the units
  • Linear LED bulbs in the hallways and common areas
  • Programmable thermostats
  • Faucet aerators
  • Low-flow showerheads

Eligible properties

Eligible properties include transitional housing, shelters, Section 8, and other forms of long-term, affordable multifamily housing properties. Service must be provided by one of the three sponsor utilities and the property located in the state of Iowa.

The updates provide energy savings and improved living conditions for tenants. This not only helps with tenant retention, but also helps to attract new tenants. Enrollment in the program lasts for five years, so any updates made within this timeframe would still be eligible for rebates through the program.

Please contact Cindy Stevens at The Energy Group at 515-564-1045 x211 or at today to schedule your free audit report and direct install of energy efficient items.
