Wisconsin Housing Preservation Corp (WHPC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the largest owner of affordable housing in the State of Wisconsin. With a diverse portfolio of over 8,400 units located in more than 450 buildings across 58 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties, WHPC provides safe, affordable housing for low and moderate income families, seniors, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
With grant funding from the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, Elevate worked with WHPC to develop a portfolio-wide energy planning process to inform and guide energy related investments across the portfolio in Summer 2021. The goals of the portfolio wide energy planning process are to develop tools that centralize property information and inform decision making to:
- Preserve and provide high quality affordable housing by incorporating clean energy, healthy building, and resiliency solutions
- Prioritize rural communities that are historically underserved by energy efficiency programs
- Minimize utility cost burden on residents
- Provide a roadmap for other affordable housing portfolio owners
This presentation provides an overview for affordable housing owners and managers interested in developing a portfolio wide energy action plan to provide a call to action for leaders in affordable housing to incorporate clean energy, healthy building, and resiliency solutions across their portfolio and especially in rural communities that are historically underserved.
