It’s almost unending.” The nonprofit, with 100 employees, is funded through a variety of sources, including foundation grants, along with government and utility contracts. James Morris, who owns several apartment buildings in the Auburn Gresham area on the city’s South Side and supplies heat as part of the rent, said he commissioned upgrades at three small apartment buildings after Elevate Energy pulled together 12 months of his utility bills. “I see everything in numbers,” he said. “So it has to make sense.” Elevate Energy totaled how he’d been paying, calculated how much it would cost to lower those bills and how long it would take for him to recoup the upgrade costs.
