Electrifying a NYC co-op

How can co-ops overcome challenges to electrification?

One of the toughest challenges for the building industry is devising pathways for deep energy retrofits that are both economical and feasible. This is even more challenging in co-ops, as these buildings are managed by a board of members who vote on rules, policies and changes to them. 

On May 17, 2022, the third event in our Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings series looked at a 10-unit co-op built in 1926 and the challenges of upgrading the envelope and converting the fossil fuel boiler to a heat pump.
