Energy resources and programs for existing multi-family buildings

By 2030, we’re aiming to cut our carbon pollution from buildings in half compared to 2007 levels.

Do you live in, manage, or own a unit in a multi-family building? Below is a list of energy resources and programs available for residents or owners of a condo, strata unit, townhouse, rental apartment, non-profit, or co-op building.

With increasing demand for electrification in multi-family buildings, resources are becoming more readily available. 

Multi-family buildings include rental apartments, strata condominiums, co-ops, and co-housing developments that contain multiple housing units within 1 building or several buildings within 1 complex. They range from small apartment buildings, townhouses, and 3-storey walk-ups, to large downtown glass high-rises and 100+ unit complexes. 

What's happeningClimate-Friendly Buildings Advisory Committee (CFBAC)

This committee will advise us as we develop regulations and programs to reduce carbon pollution from existing multifamily buildings while adapting these buildings to be healthier, safer, and more resilient to the impacts of climate change and environmental stressors.
