7 Best Practices for the Energy-Efficient and Solar-Resourced Multifamily Building

A project that integrates energy efficiency and solar resources has many moving parts. It’s not something you want to underestimate in terms of complexity. Here are seven key points that should be on any multifamily program administrator’s checklist to ensure a smooth trajectory from predevelopment to maintenance.

Address Your Stress

When you’re busy or stressed, it doesn’t take much to become upset. This could be caused by something major, like a work request you’re not able to complete, or something small, like a clicking sound across the room that won’t stop. It could even be caused by something traditionally considered a safety measure, like the alarm sounding in your car when you put your key in the ignition. Stressors like these can create a real dent in the daily dirigible of deliverance.

How to Surmount Skepticism About Energy Efficiency in Rural Communities

One in five Americans lives in rural America. That’s about 60 million people with a way of life and a proud, independent culture all their own. They don’t have the same usage patterns as those that live in urban or suburban areas, meaning they can’t be reached with the same tactics and programs.

How to Revive the Aging Utility Infrastructure

The weak links in our already weakened utility infrastructure are numerous to behold. In 2018 alone, three separate incidents illustrate the extent of the problem. According to a J. D. Power report, a residential gas leak and subsequent explosions in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover, MA resulted in one death and 25 injuries. In California, power lines may have played a role in the deadly Camp wildfire. In New Jersey, water utilities in the state have amassed 226 contamination violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Our crumbling infrastructure is in desperate need of upgrades, but the price tag may be beyond the government’s budget.

International Day of Light

Did you know that May 16th is the International Day of Light? I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that’s something you probably didn’t know, because only lighting geeks like me really pay attention to that type of stuff. Ha!
