Willets Point Asphalt

Willets Point has removed about 1,500 of these CO2 balloons from our atmostphere annually for the next 20 years.

“Willets Point Asphalt produces asphalt with 40% fewer carbon emissions. This project showcases our contribution to reducing green house gases”Ken Tully, Willets Point Asphalt
Willets Point Asphalt (WPA) manufacturers asphalt for public and private roadways. Firstly, WPA is a long time customer of ours. We approached WPA to offer assistance in lowering energy costs. WPA was interested in contributing to NYC’s carbon challenge.This asphalt plant was 15 years young with about 10 years of useful life left. Consequently, since most of our Customers are commercial office buildings, working at an asphalt plant was both exotic and challenging to us.
Fordham University Law School
LED Lighting Upgrades.  Automated Demand Response.  Dormitory PTAC Units and more!Fordham approached ConEdison and Nyserda to seek cash incentives to offset their project costs for a new law school building.  LCA was engaged and overturned every stone to maximise Fordham's energy effciency incentives.  LCA was able to identify additional measures that if implemented would qualify Fordham to receive cash incentive bonuses under the pilot Demand Management Program.Highlights included the implementation of a pollution mitigation system that allows Fordham to dispatch a diesel generator to participate in a demand response program.  LCA also increased the cash incentive for a PTAC replacement on one of the dormitory floors by 500% by including an ADR system.

Trump Soho Hotel
Before the Trump Soho hotel was built their developers engaged LC Associates to identify any opportunities to offset project costs and identify energy efficiency opportunities. 

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.


  • 400 kW of demand Response
  • ~$80,000 cash incentive
New York Methodist Hospital

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.
ABC Carpet Building
Clean Heat PUmps

ABC Carpet Building
Oil to Electric Heat Pump Conversion

The ABC Carpet & Home building, located at 888 Broadway in New York City, is a historic landmark. The building dates back to the late 19th century. Samuel Weinrib originally built it in 1881, and started a carpet cleaning business. Over the decades, it evolved into a high-end home furnishings retailer. ABC Carpet is known for its eclectic and luxurious collections. The building itself, an example of cast-iron architecture, features intricate facades and grand interiors. It has become a beloved destination for New Yorkers and tourists alike. The ABC Carpet building symbolizes both the city's rich commercial history and its flair for design.

The energy efficiency project at 880 Broadway earned accolades for its transformative impact on sustainability. The property manager, honored with the BOMA NY Manager of the Year award 2023, collaborated with Cutone & Company Consultants to drive change. Their focus? Electrification.

By replacing an aging oil-fired steam boiler with clean energy heat pumps, significant strides were made in reducing carbon emissions and enhancing energy efficiency. Through a robust tenant engagement program, flagship restaurant Jean-Georges identified opportunities for clean energy efficiency improvements. With support from the property manager and consultants, Jean-Georges embarked on a tailored energy efficiency program, setting a new standard for sustainable practices in the real estate industry.

LC Associates is uniquely positioned to secure cash incentives for almost any industry in New York City.  All it takes is a phone call or an email and we will survey your building and assist in filing your application for funding with no up front cost to you.
