Energy Efficiency Success Story: 5649 S. Indiana, Chicago

Elevate Energy works with a variety of multifamily buildings, from large high-rises to smaller walk-ups such as this one. Landlord Jeff Cunningham owns several properties, and used our full-service approach to improve five of them.

We replaced the buildings’ boilers, installed new boiler controls, added pipe insulation, and completed roof cavity air sealing and insulation. Elevate Energy always recommends the most cost-effective improvements.

Jeff received a low-interest Energy Savers Loan from Community Investment Corporation (CIC) to cover the two insulation measures, as well as a grant from Elevate Energy for part of the boiler replacement, and financing from CIC for acquisition and additional rehab of the property.

He saw a 34.6 percent savings on his natural gas bills in the first year.
