Efficiency Opportunities in Multifamily Common Area Laundry Facilities

A study on existing multifamily laundry landscape

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) are collaborating in support of the Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA) initiative to study the existing multifamily laundry landscape and provide facts related to common-area laundry facilities in twelve states that are the focus areas for the EEFA initiative: California, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia. The study also includes recommendations to utilities on how to incentivize water savings.

Making multifamily residential properties more energy efficient is a key strategy for reducing the disproportionate energy cost burden facing families on limited incomes. Energy cost burden is the percentage of household income spent on energy bills.

Huge numbers of Californians struggle and sacrifice to afford energy bills - a fact most Californians understand and would even pay more to rectify, a new poll commissioned by Energy Efficiency for All shows.

There is no question that investing in energy efficiency upgrades has the potential to deliver substantial financial, environmental, and health benefits to building owners and residents.
