Incentivizing Landlords to Retrofit Homes


An audience member asks the speakers about how incentives can be created to encourage landlords to retrofit multifamily homes to be more efficient. "I think that there are economic models out there that can show where if you’re renting and you can prove that the utility burden for that renter is lower, that the rent can be higher," said Daniel Simons, principal at David Baker Architects.
