Lowell, Mass., August 1, 2012 — TRC Companies won a multi-year contract to deliver program management services for Efficiency Maine's Multifamily Efficiency Program. The initiative aims to reduce energy consumption by 20 percent by providing comprehensive retrofit services to 1,800 apartment units across the state.
The energy efficiency program will target small to medium buildings with 5-20 apartment units. Buildings selected to participate will be benchmarked and audited by approved program partners.
Building owners will receive recommendations for specific efficiency projects to implement as well as rebates that offset a portion of the installation costs. Efficiency Maine will also coordinate with Maine lenders to provide additional financing assistance to support project completion.
As manager of the multifamily efficiency program, TRC will conduct final program design and implementation activities including development of program documents; management of application process; development, management and training of program partner network staff conducting energy audits and project financial analyses; ensure quality control; and generally oversee the program's success.
TRC manages similar multifamily programs in New York for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and for the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority.
