Greening Our Portfolio

NHPF also ensures that with each property it acquires— and with each renovation it undertakes—energy and other resources are conserved. High-efficiency appliances are purchased. Outdated plumbing is replaced with low- flow plumbing fixtures such as faucets and shower heads. Energy-saving double-pane insulated window are installed. All of these ingredients contribute to the NHPF green- building recipe. The result is environmental responsibility, cost-efficiency, and adherence to Enterprise Green Communities® energy-efficiency standards.
NHPF CONSIDERS EVERY OPTION to improve the
environmental sustainability of our portfolio. These cost- effective practices lower operating costs while increasing the resources available for residential services and the greening of the portfolio. In carrying out due diligence before acquiring a property, NHPF commissions an energy audit. The audit process reveals what sustainable energy features need to be incorporated into the renovation plan, and what savings can be realized. Energy audits enable us to lower future utility costs compared to the average spending for similar multifamily buildings in the local area.
