Buying a house was your dream and you achieved it. You lived in that house for a few years and now you want to sell it. But due to economic turbulence or realty slump, the valuation of your house has taken a dive. What do you do now?
One of the things that you can do is upgrade your house to make it more energy efficient. The two primary reasons for doing this are:
Truman State University and Energy Solutions Professionals (ESP) are partnering on a $10.5 million project to address energy-saving opportunities, major infrastructure upgrades and deferred maintenance needs that will be paid for by over $1 million dollars in annual energy and operational savings—requiring no funds from Missouri taxpayers.
ESP’s work was among the 32 projects chosen to receive a 2015 Capstone Award.
The Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program is providing a way for old buildings to get major energy upgrades. The energy savings cover the big upfront cost of the improvements, which also benefit the environment and provide jobs.
The new PACE financed project will help Signature Property Management save more than $55,000 a year in utility and operating costs for Wornall Plaza Condominiums following $670,000 worth of renovations.
