Landlords offered tips
on energy efficiencies

Wednesday at 6 p.m. Opportunities in Energy Efficiency for Landlords will provide energy incentive information for landlords of 1-5 unit properties that serve low and moderate-income tenants.

It’s in the The Adirondack Bank Training Center, behind The HomeOwnership Center’s main facility at 1611 Genesee St., Utica, facing Grant Street.

The fee for the landlord course is $10, and registration by calling The HomeOwnership Center at 724-4197 is required by Monday.

This is the first in a new Conscious Communities Environmental/Energy Efficiency Series offered by UNHS NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center.

The program will cover several topics, including apartment systems that consume the most energy, how energy improvements can improve property values and reduce utility costs and how landlords can tap into statewide incentive programs that may cover some or all costs related to energy-efficiency upgrades. Landlords or potential landlords will learn how to reduce rental unit operating costs and how they can become more environmentally conscientious.

The HomeOwnership Center’s Conscious Communities Series is offered in partnership with the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board, an independent contractor for NYSERDA.
