Reducing your Multifamily Building's Operating Costs - Pacific Energy Center

 Registration is closed for this event

Are you interested in learning more about how to reduce your multifamily buildings operating costs? Join CSE and BayREN at the PG&E Pacific Energy Center to find out how to save money and help your apartment building stand out from the crowds. 

BayREN administers the Bay Area Multifamily Building Enhancements (BAMBE) program, offering incentives for energy efficiency upgrades and serving as a resource to refer you to a different incentive program if your project scope does not qualify.

CSE will cover the principles of going solar in the PG&E territory using virtual net metering and how you can see electricity bill saving across common area and tenant accounts.

Virtual net metering is a utility arrangement offered by Pacific Gas and Electric that allows for a market-rate multi-metered, multi-tenant property to install a single solar electric system which can be shared by multiple onsite tenant and common load utility accounts, resulting in direct, on-bill savings. *Please note that the solar session will focus on solar for market-rate apartment buildings. 

Agenda topics:

  • BAMBE overview
  • Value proposition & tenant recoupment methods
  • Financing opportunities
  • Finding an experienced contractor
  • Post-installation monitoring and administration
  • Case Studies
  • Q&A


*Solar contractor solicitations will not be permitted at this event. If you are a solar contractor, please consider attending one of our contractor trainings, as this event is meant for property owners.
