Residential Real Estate

Attract and retain residents, maximize rentable space, decrease energy expenses and achieve 99.99% energy reliability.

Whether you own apartment buildings or condominiums, the energy solution you choose for your residential buildings directly impacts your bottom line and the tenants you attract and retain. With district energy, you save both building and occupant space, renovation and upgrade cost and on going expenses, simplify your HVAC design and installation, and reduce your carbon footprint with Vicinity’s commitment to be net zero carbon by 2050—a plan both you and your residents can get behind.

How Vicinity Can Help

District energy means maximized real estate value and increased safety for your residents with no onsite combustion; there’s no need for onsite boilers, cooling towers, in-unit heat pumps or water heaters. In addition to avoiding this significant upfront capital expense, owners and tenants experience reliable heating and cooling, more in-apartment space and less noise, while you avoid the typical lifecycle expenses associated with boilers, heat pumps and condensers. Your residents also enjoy total control over their heating and cooling, with individual controls and on-demand hot water. Meter data is collected in an integrated dashboard for advanced monitoring and easy billing, allowing every resident to view, measure and understand their consumption and carbon footprint.
