Fellows: 

Are you a homeowner, interested in finding ways to make your home or investment property more sustainable? Then join Switzer Fellow Beverly Craig to discuss lessons learned from 6 years working on improving the water and energy performance of multifamily affordable housing with Homeowner's Rehab, a nonprofit that owns over 1,000 units of affordable housing in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They "green" their portfolio by installing energy efficient devices in their properties, which helps them meet both financial and social goals. We have a short video about Bev's work with the organization that is a good introduction to the topic.

She will answer your questions including:

  • Why do buildings matter when it comes to CO2 production?
  • How do you find out how your home measures up to others in your neighborhood?
  • What are the most cost effective energy measures you can take?
  • What devices can you use to reduce phantom electric loads?
