HAMDEN, Conn. (STL.News) – Belfonti Companies, LLC has been completing a wide variety of energy upgrades in the independent living and multi-family apartment complexes in its real estate portfolio.
“The upgrades make our residents more comfortable and are in line with the green platform of our company,” said Michael Belfonti, the founder and CEO of Belfonti Companies. “We are always looking to try and be more environmentally responsible by reducing our carbon footprint,” he added.
