Additional Resources for Multifamily Projects
The New Buildings team is available to provide on-the-ground technical support for your new low-, mid- and high-rise multifamily projects. Team members will facilitate your high-performance design and construction projects and answer any questions about the program. For contractors who work on low-rise multifamily projects, our team will also assist you in meeting ENERGY STAR certification. Technical requirements for multifamily ENERGY STAR certification requirements and technical compliance options can be found at Northwest ENERGY STAR.
Regional training events offer opportunities to learn about building more efficient multifamily dwellings. Find out about upcoming builder workshops and events in your area.
Builders of new multifamily projects can receive additional Energy Trust incentives for planning solar into their projects during early design and building their project solar ready. All solar systems must be installed by an approved solar trade ally and meet Energy Trust performance and installation requirements. Energy Trust provides a list of solar trade ally contractors who can perform the installation.
Tax Credits for Builders
When you build an energy-efficient building, you may also be eligible for federal tax credits.
