About

Join us to learn about EZ Retrofit- a free, do-it-yourself Excel-based audit tool that gives auditors and multifamily property owners and managers an easy way to identify cost-effective energy and water efficiency upgrades. EZ Retrofit considers how building systems can work together to effectively reduce energy and water use and costs. EZ Retrofit can be used for small to medium-size multifamily properties in any climate zone.

No prerequisite knowledge is required, though basic building systems knowledge will be helpful.

  2. Learn how to access free tools to do self-assessments in-house or with a professional energy inspector to ensure a healthier building
  3. Articulate how pre and post energy testing fit into green building goals for the welfare of affordable housing tenants
  4. Know where to get more resources to do cost-effective retrofits that reduce emissions
