Partners: Elevate Energy, Presence Health Systems, Green & Healthy Homes Initiative
This pilot targets income eligible multifamily residences with high numbers of severe asthma patients, conducting assessments for asthma triggers and energy efficiency opportunities in customer units.
The year-long Healthy Homes pilot targets income eligible multifamily residences with high numbers of severe asthma patients. The pilot aims to partner with Presence Health Systems and complete joint health-energy assessments in 20 units from two multifamily buildings. The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative will train and certify two of Elevate Energy’s energy assessors as Healthy Home Evaluators so that they are able to conduct assessments for asthma triggers and energy efficiency opportunities at each of the units. Elevate Energy will coordinate the schedule of the subcontractors and families as well as with the community health worker and energy assessor to ensure the installation schedule and measures align with the expectations and desires of the family. In addition to tracking and recording energy cost savings, pre and post surveys will be conducted to track and report feedback from pilot participants and staff to evaluate the success of the coordinated delivery model through energy savings and customer health improvements.
