Efficiency Maine's Multifamily Efficiency Program offers incentives to multifamily residency building owners for improving energy efficiency. Residencies must have 5 to 20 apartment units to qualify for this rebate. Before making energy efficiency improvements, building owners will receive an energy audit by a qualified program partner and will be given project quotes for financial incentives and payback calculations. For the first incentive, owners can choose either the $100 prescriptive path or the $200 modeling path, both of which are based on a per apartment unit basis. The second incentive of $1,400 or 50% of installed cost applies to all incentives and is paid after approval of energy efficiency installations.

This Program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
