Multifamily Energy Efficiency Services
Energy costs are the largest controllable cost in a multifamily building – often accounting for 25-35% of operating costs. Elysian Energy provides energy efficiency upgrades that save you money and improve your tenants’ comfort–all with an insane ROI.
For every 100 units we serve, conservative annual savings equal 1.25 MM gallons of water and $12,000 in lower electricity bills. We install $3,000-$5,000 worth of avoided material costs per every 100 units. Since May 2010, we’ve saved our clients over $3.5 Million in utility costs each year.
Lower your lighting costs with energy efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that use 75% less energy than incandescents.
Reduce water and energy usage 50% with faucet aerators. Less water usage means less water needs to be heated in your building.
Contribute to a more sustainable future. Last year our CO2 reductions were the equivalent of taking over 5,250 cars off the roads.
Lead, carbon monoxide and moisture issues including mold and rot are issues we help your community identify early. Every member of our crew has energy audit training and can spot these issues for your maintenance staff.We include any safety information in our comprehensive report to property managers. Our lighting retrofits also serve to reduce the need for future preventative maintenance.
Reduce maintenance costs and improve the lifespan of your heating, cooling, and water systems.
We conduct Health & Safety checks in each unit and work with you to resolve any issues.

Creating efficient living spaces is a win-win-win. You’ll decrease spending on utilities and maintenance. Your tenants will enjoy greater comfort and will have to replace their lighting up to ten times less frequently. And mother nature will thank you for it–for every 100 units we serve, annual savings equal 1.25 MM gallons of water. Choose from one of four energy efficiency packages for your units, or customize your own.
We’ll install efficient-flow shower heads and faucet aerators in each unit, and provide energy saving tips for your tenants to help them make more efficient choices.

Residential unit energy usage is only one piece of your energy consumption.We evaluate your common area energy usage in hallways, lobby areas, and outdoor spaces, and gain a whole-system understanding of your commercial-size heating and cooling systems. Our common area evaluation and benchmarking analysis pinpoints energy saving opportunities and breaks them down by return-on-investment.
