LCA identified two emergency generators that were possible candidates for an Automated Demand Response (ADR) application. The two generators were upgraded to exceed EPA standards for environmental impact and fitted out to a building automation system and participated in a demand response program. The ADR controls enable the generators to take power off the grid in times of stress and avoid the necessity of importing less environmentally friendly power from remote power plants.
This Client was one of our first projects where we maxed out an incentive for a steam retention program at $500,000. NYSERDA at the time (circa 2007) was so impressed that the reigning President of NYSERDA awarded LC Associates with the "Most Outstanding ESCo" award.This project entailed the installation of two 400 ton steam absorber chillers in order to avoid the installation of two electric 400 ton machines. The project allowed around 400 kW of electric demand to be removed from the electric grid permanently.
One of the first Power over Ethernet Lighting projects we have helped secure incentives for in New York City. This project entailed the installation of a "digital ceiling" that included LED Light fixtures, sensors and actuators driven by a CISCO PoE switch. The customer wound up saving a significant amount of installation cost since conduit, armored cabling and electrical enclosures were displaced by lower cost cat5 ethernet cabling and a network PoE Switch.Benefits:
