Taitem was the energy consultant on a first-round of RetrofitNY’s High-Performance Retrofit Solutions pilot program team for Christopher Court, a low-rise, LMI multifamily complex in Phoenix, NY. RetrofitNY is intended to create standardized, scalable deep energy-efficient retrofit solutions that can be replicated throughout the entire housing industry and support New York State’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030. This project was a two-story, eight-unit building outside of Syracuse that is part of a five-building campus.

Each solution-provider team was awarded $75,000 for the design phase of their project, which will last approximately six months. Designs are also required to exclude the use of fossil fuels onsite, and demonstrate that the designs are cost-effective, standardized, scalable and aesthetically pleasing.
