City of Gulfport, FL passes PACE!

WWEC recently completed an Energy Efficiency program for the Peninsula Inn, Gulfport, through the PACE Program. The PACE Program (Property Assessed Clean Energy enables commercial property owners to obtain energy-saving equipment for their buildings that is repaid through an added property tax assessment.

Assisted Living, FL

WWEC steps up to assist Florida ALF’s to be in compliance with the new laws including the new EPP’s and partners ALF for the installation of backup automatic generators for declared state of emergencies and other power outages ALFs may have in the future. These emergency generators will serve each ALF with enough power so that most residents should not notice any change. WWEC is also proud to be a FALA member to keep up with ongoing legislation updates on a regular basis.

Property Management

WWEC completes over 200 utility allowance studies for TM Associates Management. Janice Baker and her team processed over 200 reports for one of the largest low-income housing management companies in the U S. They coordinated with over 40 utility companies to gather the data. The reports were provided to the site managers, regional managers and corporate office. The majority of the reports had a deadline of July 1. Each site (that had provided data by July, 1) was completed on time, so that site managers and regional managers could use the data for their annual budget reporting.

Public Housing

Michigan City Housing Authority has contracted with WWEC to perform an energy performance contract using HUD's energy incentives. MCHA has aging equipment, and there is not sufficient federal funding to pay for new equipment. WWEC has completed an investment grade energy audit and plans to replace most of the heating and hot water systems in residents’ apartments. We will also be installing/replacing LED lighting and water fixtures. Project size approx. $1,500,000, with savings of approx. $140,000 per year. The planned project will be sent to the Indianapolis HUD office and the HUD energy office for approval later this year. A second phase is also being identified to replace the rest of the heating equipment and install solar PV.
