Vistula Management Company (VMC) is an Ohio housing management company with 35 years of experience providing decent, safe and comfortable homes for 1,700 elderly and families. The company renovates and preserves historic structures, builds new projects, and educates residents about recycling and conserving water and energy. VMC’s goal is to increase the comfort of the homes it manages, while also reducing their carbon emissions.

The Better Buildings Challenge provides an opportunity to take the next steps, in partnership with HUD and DOE, to reduce carbon output and provide safe, comfortable and affordable housing for VMC residents.

During 2016 VMC will install over 100KW of solar modules, retrofit 41 buildings containing 250 units in Historic Districts, reduce water use by 25%, install reporting meters to allow real time monitoring of energy usage, and install computer monitoring dashboards in the buildings to encourage residents to take pride in helping to reduce global warming.
