Comparative Case Studies of All-Electric Affordable Housing: Developer and Occupant Perspectives
The research team conducted case studies of three affordable housing developments to document the experiences of residents and stakeholders involved in project development. Data was collected from interviews with developers, architects, consultants, and on-site staff (including property managers and facilities staff) and a phone survey with residents. Information was also gathered from existing literature and industry webinars. The research will result in several reports that highlight the experience of some of the first affordable housing communities to adopt low carbon energy systems.
