Case Study
New Yorkers look to Bellevue for their health. Bellevue looked to NYPA for energy efficiency and cost savings

As the oldest and one of the largest public hospitals in the US, Bellevue has been caring for New Yorkers for over 280 years. When the hospital was looking to lower energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint, NYPA helped Bellevue identify energy efficiency upgrades - replacing 28,000 light fixtures with LED lighting, installing 2,500 occupancy sensors and refurbishing their air handling unit.

The Result: Energy cost savings of more than $1 million annually.

CASE STUDY
NYC’s largest bus depot needed a 21st century clean energy upgrade. NYPA did the job

The 640,000 square foot Michael J. Quills Bus Depot operates 24/7 with 375 buses moving through it every day. NYPA’s job was to recommend energy efficiency solutions to upgrade the facility. We did that and more.

From cost-benefit analysis to site evaluation, contractor selection and installation, NYPA led the process, while also identifying incentives from NYSERDA and other state sources, helping the MTA reach CLCPA goals.

The upgrade included LED lighting conversion with Smart features, wireless dimmers, and upgrades of their hot water pumps, HVAC system, chillers, DCV, BMS, boiler systems and air compressors.

The Result: Total CO2 reduction of 4000+ tons per year, and over $1 million annually in energy savings.
