Multi-Family Incentive Program

Whether you are seeking to differentiate your property in the crowded multi-family market, or reduce the energy and maintenance costs of your building, you could become the next developer to benefit from the many competitive and financial advantages of natural gas.

Why Choose natural gas?

There are numerous reasons natural gas is the premier and profitable choice when it comes to your development. Beyond the inherent comforts of natural gas, an apartment that uses natural gas for water heating, gourmet cooking, clothes drying and space heating leaves about half the carbon footprint of a non-gas home. Here are six more reasons to choose natural gas for your next multi-family project.

Increased Resident Satisfaction. Long-Term Gain

In addition to encouraging residents to stay longer via increased resident satisfaction, natural gas enables many types of long-term gain. Whether it’s the upgraded appearance and perception of your building, or easier billing with automated meter readers, the advantages are wide-ranging with natural gas.

Maximize Margins On Rental Rates

Not only do residents prefer premium natural gas living; they’re willing to pay extra for it. For building owners, financial advantages also include lower energy bills, reduced operating costs and longer lasting systems that require less maintenance.

Improve Resident Retention

Renters want homes that are comfortable and appliances that will save them money. Natural gas is the fuel source that does it all! This means that natural gas creates happy residents. And happy residents stay longer, which means less costly turnover at your property.

Help Developments Reach Full Potential

Once natural gas is available in a unit, then the creative possibilities have just begun. From fireplaces and patio lights, to outdoor kitchens and BBQ grills…more creature comforts are easily built in with natural gas. It’s an enviable way to live!

Good For The Environment

Natural gas is today’s choice for a better tomorrow. It provides superior performance at a lower cost—with a smaller carbon footprint. Your residents can feel better knowing that natural gas is more energy efficient than non-gas energy sources. With natural gas, tenants will be encouraged to conserve energy and help the environment while enjoying cost- saving benefits too!
