The measures described here have already helped The NHP Foundation maintain energy-efficient, comfortable and affordable properties and set the stage for other important initiatives. 2020 and Beyond . . . In 2020 NHPF is building on and expanding the environmental practices that have already borne cost savings. This includes first-time installation of solar panel systems at four of our DC properties equaling 887 units of affordable housing, often producing enough energy to cover entire common areas of apartment communities. As well in 2020, two DC properties, Benning Heights and Woodmont Crossing are partnering with the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) and DC Sustainability Energy Utility (DCSEU) on their Solar For All Initiative. Our recent installation of solar panel systems at both locations offer our residents the opportunity to receive an energy bill reduction of up to $500 savings annually. There is no cost to participate and homeownership is not required. NHPF is looking to realize $30K in potential savings for residents in a 12-month period.
