Portfolio Summary: Whole Building Data by Reporting Period

Better Buildings Challenge partners strive to report whole-building data for all properties within their portfolio. Often, Multifamily partners face the added challenge of collecting data from tenant-paid utility accounts. The Better Buildings Challenge is working with Multifamily partners and utility companies to improve the data collection and reporting process. While this important work continues, Multifamily partners are being recognized for their successes within those properties that are reporting whole-building data. Truth or Consequences H.A.’s portfolio consists of 11 properties and 373,000 square feet. The partner has improved energy performance by 3% from a 2015 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2023.

PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Truth or Consequences H.A.’s portfolio consists of 11 properties and 373,000 square feet. The partner has improved energy performance by 3% from a 2015 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2023.  Energy savings have been achieved by implementing lighting retrofits and installing high efficiency windows, programmable thermostats and solar PV panels at two properties: Vista del Cerro, and Villa del Sol.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY PROPERTY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Truth or Consequences has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 10% at two of its properties. There are two properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Truth or Consequences' portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 80 to 120 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2025. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
