Multifamily Programs

Programs for Multifamily Building Owners

Efficiency Maine has a number of programs for which multifamily properties are eligible. The Multifamily Efficiency Program is a comprehensive program for buildings with 5 or more units; part of this program includes free Benchmarking Services as a first step in determining an energy plan. For smaller properties of 4 units or fewer, building owners are eligible for PACE loans as well as Efficiency Maine’s Home Energy Savings Program.

Tenants should encourage their building managers to participate in these programs. Additional resources on how to save energy in your apartment can be found here.
