Ready to Make Energy Efficiency Upgrades, But Aren't Sure Where to Start? 

Many property owners and managers intuitively know that energy efficiency makes good sense, but miss out on available incentives because they feel unsure about the process. Now is your chance to ask a peer property owner who made energy upgrades with incentives from the Energy Upgrade California Multifamily program. TRC Energy Services and the San Diego Housing Federation have partnered to bring an actual Case Study to life. See details below and register today for the Los Robles Apartments Case Study: Up Close & Personal Roundtable!

To learn how the Energy Upgrade California Multifamily program can benefit both property owners and their residents contact Nicole Beaulieu at 916-844-0084 or via email at

Join TRC Energy Services and the San Diego Housing Federation on Wednesday., August 24 at 8:30 am for a unique opportunity to gain valuable insight on how energy efficiency upgrades make more sense when incentives are available.
