In this interview I discuss with Jack Zhou, energy consultant with A & J Energy Consultants, the process of performing energy audits on multifamily properties of 5+ units to qualify for financing under CMHC MLI Select under the energy efficiency section of this program launched in March 2022.

As you'll see, Jack is very passionate consultant who loves his work and is determined to contribute to having greener multifamily properties.

CMHC MLI Select is designed to promote three social outcomes, which are:

i) affordable housing;

ii) energy-efficient housing, and:

iii) accessible housing.

MLI Select works based on a scoring system. The more these social outcomes are achieved, the more point points are obtained, and the greater the flexibilities that can be obtained. With a maximum of 100 points, borrowers can benefit from 95% loan-to-value, 1.1 debt coverage ratios, and 50-year amortization periods.
