Study after study has shown that investing in resource efficiency in buildings saves money and with very short returns on the investment. Forbes demonstrates that commercial buildings can save 50% of operating costs. Additional benefits include healthy indoor air quality and more even temperature and humidity from one room or area to another. Yet, the myth that green building is costly and the investments in it never pay themselves back is commonly repeated. Initial costs of upgrading existing low-income housing can be a barrier. This is where local government can play a role to address such inequities. Revolving low interest loans, PACE financing, and other strategies can be employed to address them. Pax Consulting has extensive experience in creating a range of policies and programs for local government to improve the performance of all buildings from single-family homes, to commercial and industrial buildings, to government buildings.
