    Investing in energy efficiency can add value to your properties. Lower energy bills are attractive to existing and potential tenants, helping to reduce vacancy rates and lower tenant turnover. And, the cost savings you can achieve through energy efficiency improvements can be used to reinvest in the property or mitigate rent increases.
    That’s why MidAmerican’s Income Qualified Multifamily Housing program provides resources to help lower operating costs and reduce tenant energy bills for properties such as transitional housing, shelters, Section 8 housing and other types of long-term, affordable multifamily housing.
