Energy Efficiency Laws Spur Demand

 

Two new laws in New York have created a large opportunity for enhanced efficiency. The two regulations that will affect New York property owners are the PlayNYC and Greener, Greater Buildings Plan.

 

The laws will require buildings to complete projects that increase the building’s energy efficiency including lighting retrofits, energy audits, and reduce consumption.

 

“Every building over 50,000 square feet [in New York] has to get an energy audit done sometime in the next ten years,” said Bright Power founder Jeffrey Perlman. “This law is a great catalyst for people to say, ‘I have to do this anyway, so now is a great time to handle it.”
