The U.S. Energy Information Administration advises that energy costs may increase an additional 68% over the next 20 years. What should a property owner do?
Energy and water conservation improvements are an investment! There are a number of improvements eligible for residential and non-residential properties.
mPOWER – A partner in energy savings!
With mPOWER financing, property owners can finance those improvements with no out-of-pocket costs, and then repay it through the property’s tax bill. mPOWER also partners with all five of the regional energy providers to save commercial property owners money through energy audits, rebates and incentives.
