CSD Awards Contract to AEA to Weatherize Large Multifamily Buildings in CA
The Association for Energy Affordability has been Awarded the Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP) Contract for weatherizing Large Multi-family (LMF) Buildings in California.
The California Department of Community Services (CSD) selected AEA to provide whole building energy efficiency retrofit/weatherization and program coordination services to low-income residents in large multi-unit dwellings located within targeted (disadvantaged communities” (DACs) as defined by the California Environmental Protection Agency. The funds for this project are awarded by CSD under the Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP), which was funded with $75 million in Climate Investments Program proceeds in the State’s 2014-2015 budget.
Weatherization measures may include energy efficiency upgrades, solar water heating and solar photovoltaic systems. Benefits of the program include reducing greenhouse gas emissions, helping residents lower their energy costs and water usage, and other environmental and economic co-benefits, such as supporting workforce development, in the DACs.
