When Nancy Lam found her way to Community Housing Partners (CHP) in July of 2019, no one expected that the journey to the home repairs and weatherization that would allow her to stay in her home of 64 years would span multiple years. Through multiple partnerships and perseverance in the face of the worldwide COVID pandemic, Nancy is now safe and comfortable in her home.
Combining programs sponsored by Washington Gas and Dominion Energy, CHP Energy Solutions installed energy efficiency upgrades including attic insulation, air sealing, LED lightbulbs, low-flow water fixtures, and more in 248 units at The Regency Apartment Homes in Manassas, VA at no cost to the property.
CHP Energy Solutions realized significant energy savings at Christiansburg Bluff in 2012 through the federal Weatherization Assistance Program. Now with heat pumps averaging 17 years in age, it was time to realize even more energy savings by updating the old 11 SEER heat pumps with new high-efficiency 16 SEER units through Appalachian Power's TakeCharge Virginia Low-Income Multifamily Program.
Energy Solutions provides weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades to a wide variety of single family and multifamily properties throughout Virginia and West Virginia. Here we highlight some of our projects with interesting technical aspects, large returns on efficiency investments, and compelling back stories.
