Through the winter, crews have been blowing in cellulose insulation, repairing and replacing furnaces, and upgrading ventilation across the Glendale family townhomes in Prospect Park. The investments are possible thanks to a partnership with CenterPoint Energy and Sustainable Resources Center (SRC), who led MPHA leaders on a tour of the work this month (at right). SRC expects to complete all 184 homes by next winter, bringing energy savings and an upgrade in comfort for residents of MPHA’s oldest major property. The weatherization is possible through grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. At around $8,000 to $10,000 of work per townhome, the full investment could total more than $1.5 million.
