Housing authority works to improve energy efficiency

The San Francisco Housing Authority is getting a little more green. No, not that kind of green, this kind of green.

The San Francisco Housing Authority's executive director, Henry Alvarez, announced that the agency is embarking on energy-efficient upgrades at all of The City’s public housing sites. SFHA received a $30 million grant from the United States Housing and Urban Development, specifically for energy-efficient programs.

In total, 37 housing sites in San Francisco will benefit from the new energy savings program, with new lighting upgrades, plumbing fixtures, boilers, water heaters and furnaces as well as decentralized heating fixtures and new insulation. 

While the much-needed upgrades will spare the agency some money along the way, it still won’t be enough to pull SFHA from the financial doldrums.
