Energy Efficiency Opportunities and Hurdles in Non-Profit Community Facilities

Report  |  April 1, 2012

This report, commissioned by the Low Income Investment Fund, provides evidence that energy efficiency retrofits of nonprofit facilities would increase and improve if financing, energy assessments, and assistance in implementation of retrofit measures were offered as a package. The report summarizes a study conducted by Pratt Center for Community Development in partnership with Bright Power, Inc., to gain insight into the needs, appetite and capacity of nonprofits to implement energy upgrades in community facilities and assess their interest in debt financing of these upgrades.
