Living Costs Drop and Livability Improves

February, 1991

After the conversion from electric to natural gas heating and energy retrofits,  residents enjoyed cost savings and much more comfortable homes. Residents had told stories of heating bills that sometimes exceeded their rent in the winter, and a survey revealed that they often kept their thermostats at 60 degrees before the renovations to keep costs down.  The lower energy costs meant they could set their thermostats at a more comfortable and healthful 68 degrees. Physical improvements in their homes resulted in an improved quality of life. Exciting new resident involvement in the governance of Northgate also sparked a new sense of pride in the development.
