ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WDVM)– Good Shepherd Housing is getting the help they need with a $113,000 grant from Dominion Energy that supports energy efficiency.

Dominion Energy and Good Shepherd Housing partnered together to assist with low income housing.

Projects include:
     *   Replacing old windows, doors and HVACs
     *   Sealing doors and windows with weatherstripping
     *   Installing insulation in walls and ceilings
     *   Installing LED lights
     *   Installing programable thermostats
     *   Covering water pipes with insulation.

Officials said what’s most important is giving residents a more safe and suitable living environment.

David Levine, President/CEO of Good Shepherd Housing said,
“Were managing affordable rental housing here, so if we can lower our cost on energy and save that’s ultimately going to mean we can make the rent even more affordable to people living there. We can really reduce the cost of the utilities.”

Good Shepherd officials said out of the 42 affordable housing units 22 units will be renovated, and the work will start in January of 2021.
