Green Initiatives

Eden Housing is a member of the Better Buildings Challenge, a national effort sponsored by HUD and the Department of Energy, to improve building performance. This work has not only made a difference in our consumption of natural resources, but has also had a positive impact on project operating costs.

Eden Housing is also a member of Biden’s Better Climate Challenge, with a commitment to a 50% or more reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our 2021 portfolio over the next 10 years. Our near-term goal is to create a roadmap for electrification of our portfolio.

Eden Housing is implementing California’s Solar in Multi-Family Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program. We have completed three installations and are in process with 15 more, saving nearly 10 million pounds of greenhouse gas. This will offset tenant electric bills—with an estimated savings of $45 a month.
