Retrofit Older Buildings

We have remarkable buildings on the UWS, but many of them are older and require retrofitting to become more energy efficient. Ken believes the City Council needs to help provide greater financing mechanisms for these buildings to encourage energy conservation, white roofing, and conversion to alternative energy sources. This is another opportunity to create true public-private partnerships with our financial institutions to allow for access to capital for our apartment houses to finance such retrofitting. Ken knows that the fastest and most effective way to address climate change and protect the environment is to reduce energy consumption.
