The Dormitory Authority Joins with New York State Energy Research & Development Authority to Help Customers Save Energy and Money
Lake Shore Health Care Center managers have saved thousands with a new co-generation system.
In July 2000, the Dormitory Authority and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announced a new partnership to help mutual customers develop innovative energy-saving projects. Energy efficiency helps our customers protect the environment and save money - often so much that the savings offset project costs within a short time.
The partnership allows our customers access in one step to the services, expertise and financing available through both authorities. Together, the Dormitory Authority and NYSERDA will help customer s find the necessary technical and financial assistance to turn ideas into money-saving, energy-efficient projects.
Through a collaboration in 1999 at Lake Shore Health Care Center in Chautauqua County, the Dormitory Authority and NYSERDA helped the hospital install a new energy-efficient cogeneration plant that now saves the hospital more than $160,000 in annual energy costs. This one project demonstrated the potential for both authorities to provide innovative solutions for customers using the resources of both.
The partnership is working on a joint effort for the State University of New York at New Paltz to include a NYSERDA consultant as part of the design team to incorporate "green building" concepts in a new residence hall. Recognizing the importance of these energy-saving technologies, the Authority has long-wanted to offer green building services to our customers. NYSERDA provides the expertise and know-how to make this happen through this new partnership.
