Energy and Rental Housing: A Wisconsin Characterization Study
This study characterizes Wisconsin rental housing in energy-related terms. It is based on a statewide sample of 180 rental properties, ranging from single-family rental homes to large apartment buildings.
The findings are based on detailed on-site audit data that were gathered for each building, along with owner/manager and tenant survey, as well as utility usage history data. While other more limited energy characterizations of Wisconsin rental properties have been conducted in the past, this is the first study with a statewide perspective embracing the full range of rental housing in the state.
