RENEW It Now NY™ provides funding, implementation, maintenance and monitoring of energy-efficiency and clean energy projects in New York State.
Rochester, NY and Boston, MA – January 17, 2018 – RENEW Energy Partners, a company committed to addressing the challenges of climate change by accelerating the adoption of energy-efficiency and clean energy solutions, today announced HARD Manufacturing will be one of the first projects with RENEW It Now NY, an initiative focused on speeding the implementation of energy-efficiency retrofits and clean energy upgrades throughout New York State. RENEW It Now NY won participation in NYSERDA’s Emerging Technologies and Accelerated Commercialization program which supports innovative projects and project approaches by providing participants with special incentives, additional measurement and verification of project performance, and showcasing of projects.
RENEW It Now NY in Action
Buffalo-based HARD Manufacturing Co., the leading manufacturer of hospital cribs and youth beds in the United States will be the one the first demonstration sites for RENEW It Now NY. The facility-wide upgrades include new LED lighting and lighting controls. Along with these core retrofit services, the program provides upfront auditing and post-construction maintenance, optimization and monitoring services – all focused on delivering energy efficiency and peak ongoing performance.
“RENEW It Now NY made it very easy for us to say ‘yes’ to energy efficiency,” said Marjorie Bryen, President at Hard Manufacturing Co. “As a building owner and an independent business operator, I am always looking for ways to save money and improve our employee experience, but when that requires a large capital investment, a retrofit project like a major upgrade to our lighting system can get put on the back burner. Unitrac Energy Management proposed a lighting retrofit a couple years ago, but when they came back with the funding and implementation resources from RENEW It Now NY, coupled with rebate incentives from National Grid, we had a compelling business case to take action to reduce our energy use, saving us money and maintenance costs, while helping us do our part in battling climate change.”
With RENEW It Now NY, customers benefit from using the best new energy-efficient equipment over a multi-year period, lowering both their energy bills and carbon emissions. And they do so without spending any up-front capital, only paying for program services out of the savings generated by their energy-efficiency improvements.
