The average unit costs a property $1,020 per unit in energy expenses—30% of which is due to inefficiency losses. The RealPage Sustainability Success Series will show you how you can recover these losses and generate even more in value per unit. This multi-part series of 20-minute episodes examines the top-trending sustainability issues impacting multifamily portfolios across the country.
Episode 24: Going Net Zero With Electric
Electrification is the next hurdle in responsible building management that reduces carbon emissions. Yet most of our rental property construction is based on gas-powered energy for heat and (often) cooking.
Join multifamily sustainability expert Mary Nitschke and PG&E’s decarbonization leader Rachel Kuykendall to discuss how to take existing buildings and bring them to net-zero performance that meets regulatory targets and portfolio ESG goals. (Spoiler alert: It can be done!)
