Developing affordable housing that is financially and environmentally sustainable enables So Others Might Eat (SOME) to fulfill its commitment to excellent stewardship.
We are pleased to partner with the DCSEU, whose expertise and incentive financing have made Marian’s House and other SOME properties as sustainable as possible.
In 2014, Marian’s House—home to 43 income-qualified and formerly homeless individuals—was one such property. Its residents now benefit from more than 350 installations of energy-efficient products and equipment: LEDs and CFLs, clothes washers, a high-efficiency HVAC system, exhaust fans, insulation, air sealing, and a solar hot water. The estimated annual savings for SOME is more than $20,000.
