Parallel Session 4.4: With Affordable Housing and Energy

David Aviña is an Assistant Director at the Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB), where he coordinates energy services programs and other technical assistance work with the Member Services department. He provides cost-savings and useful tools to the limited-equity Housing Development Fund Corporation (HDFC) co-op community. He helps co-ops capture incentives for energy efficiency measures in addition to working with co-ops to install solar panels through the Co-ops Go Solar campaign, which spans a whole pipeline from initial education and cost estimates through installation. As a bilingual Spanish speaker, David fills an important role many times missing in the energy efficiency industry, especially for the affordable housing community in NYC.
