Public Housing Authority holds energy fair and renovation project

Minneapolis Public Housing Authority (MPHA) and Honeywell will host an Energy Fair to provide MPHA residents with information on the housing authority’s conservation efforts. The fair will include demonstrations and workshops about energy efficiency, as well as information on job-training programs — all in a fun, interactive environment.

In addition, Honeywell and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities will make landscaping improvements at the site of the fair. More than 80 Honeywell employees will be on hand to volunteer and Honeywell Hometown Solutions will donate more than $20,000 in materials for the project.

The energy fair will be held Friday, May 21 at Spring Manor High Rise, 828 Spring St. NE. The fair runs from noon to 4 p.m. with a formal program at 12:30 p.m.

MPHA and Honeywell plan to implement a program to help the housing authority mitigate utility costs and reduce environmental impact for its scattered site properties. MPHA will use an $11.65-million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund this program, which is expected to reduce energy costs by more than $1.5 million annually while improving comfort for residents.
