Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare is a regional medical center in Utica, New York. The center’s campus comprises of a large hospital, a nursing facility and several administrative and out-patient facilities. It is located in close proximity to Utica College. The CHP plant features Cummings gas-fired cogeneration sets. The plant supplies its thermal output to a […]
The Red Hook Stores was originally built as a 400,000 SF granary on the New York waterfront before the civil war. By the 1980’s most shipping left New York for larger facilities in New Jersey, and then the empty facility fell into disrepair. After four years of intensive renovation, the 150 year old building was […]
The CHP plant at the Greater Rochester International Airport (GRIA) received significant support from NYSERDA. The plant yields a reduction of more than 6 million kwh per year, saving GRIA approximately $400,000 in annual energy costs. The CHP plant consists of two 750 kilowatt engine driven cogeneration units that produce electricity and hot water. The hot […]
Wartburg is a 230-bed nursing home located in Brooklyn, New York. It offers a wide array of social services from two adjacent buildings surrounding a courtyard. It was clear from the outset that the best way to address the deteriorated state of the antiquated boiler rooms would be to start with a clean slate. This […]
4C Foods is a food processing and manufacturing company in Brooklyn, NY. Their acclaimed grated cheeses, bread crumbs and other gourmet products are stocked by retailers nation-wide. It takes a lot of energy to make ingredients that kick things up a notch, and in NY City, energy is exceptionally expensive. Deploying cogeneration brings about dramatic […]
Facing rapidly rising energy costs, the K-12 Fonda-Fultonville Central School District in Fonda, New York, installed a 1.3MW combined heat and power system to power the school campus. This was the first grid–independent cogeneration project in New York state and today provides all the electricity, space heating and cooling needed for the 300,000 sq. ft. […]
