“Thank you so much for the research, analysis and expertise you are providing New Neighborhoods to help us improve the energy profile of our portfolio of properties. I cannot overstate how helpful SWA’s presentation, discussion of findings, and recommendations were for us. We are very appreciative that you chose Friendship House as your multi-family ‘pilot’ property for in-depth energy profile evaluation and modeling. In addition, we are happy to be moving forward with implementation of the basic services recommended, and very excited about your identification of additional areas for improvement, as well as your offer of additional analysis and recommendations for those items (corridor ventilation system, DHW heaters, variable frequency drive, remote thermostats, and retro-commissioning of the heating equipment).”
