NYPA White Plains Office Building’s Energy Use Cut in Half: Project Addresses Governor's “Green and Clean” State Building Goals
February 25, 2003
The New York Power Authority Tuesday marked the completion of energy efficiency improvements at its corporate office in White Plains—the Clarence D. Rappleyea Building. Named for the former Power Authority chairman, the multi-million dollar measures will cut the 17-storey building’s energy use by more than 50 percent, and greenhouse gas emissions by more than 4,000 tons each year.
The improvements are also in keeping with an executive order issued by Governor George Pataki about two years ago, setting ambitious energy-saving goals for state-owned office buildings.
To date, the Power Authority has undertaken more than 1200 energy-efficiency projects across the state that have made significant inroads in reducing power demand, while saving state and municipal governments more than $80 million a year on their electric bills.
