Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC) has received the 2023 Green Hope Award from Mercy Housing Mountain Plains (MHMP). Max Kaye, Multifamily Senior Program Manager, accepted the award on behalf of EOC at last night’s Power of Home event hosted by MHMP.
EOC has worked on 12 properties as part of the Green Hope program and continues to work in partnership with Mercy Housing. “Our work with Mercy Housing has always been rewarding. Together we work to ensure that people have safe, affordable housing” said Max Kaye.
“Energy Outreach Colorado has been a partner and ally for nearly a decade, helping us access energy and water efficiency retrofits, community solar programs, and the incentive programs to make this all financially feasible at our Colorado properties,” said Jackie Slocombe, National Director of Environmental Sustainability. “We are excited to formally acknowledge this long-standing partnership and EOC’s service to the affordable housing industry in Colorado at large with this Green Hope Award.”
Mercy Housing’s Green Hope environmental sustainability program aims to reduce energy, carbon, and water consumption while lowering utility bills for both tenants and property owners among their 330+ property portfolio. Mercy Housing has formal energy and carbon reduction pledges through DOE’s Better Buildings Challenge and Better Climate Challenge, and this guides much of the work they take on in Colorado and beyond.
Energy Outreach Colorado has been a leading expert on issues impacting income-qualified energy consumers for more than 30 years. Through strong public and private partnerships, the statewide nonprofit has raised and leveraged millions of dollars to reduce energy costs and usage for Coloradans.
