Multifamily Operations and Maintenance Toolkit Now Available



Bright Power and Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF) have released an updated version of the Multifamily Energy and Water Management Toolkit, available for free download at  The toolkit provides multifamily owners and managers with a set of worksheets, checklists, tips and handy references to help cut energy and water consumption and costs, and keep your properties operating efficiently. For example, the toolkit includes worksheets to assess your organization’s energy management capacity, checklists for inspecting boilers, AC units, water fixtures, and other building systems, and tips for successful retrofit projects.

Over the coming months Bright Power will work with SAHF members, some of the largest owners of affordable multifamily housing in the country, to roll out energy efficient operations and maintenance practices in their portfolios. SAHF members are all Inaugural Partners in the Better Buildings Challenge, and have embarked on the Big Reach, an ambitious commitment to reduce energy and water consumption 20% across-the-board at their properties by 2020.
