ConEdison Solutions (CES), White Plains, N.Y., has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to implement energy efficiency improvements at more than 1,400 postal facilities in New York, New Jersey and the Caribbean.
The U.S. Postal Service has been a customer of CES since 1997. Under the contract, CES will identify and install energy conservation measures such as solar, wind power and geothermal heat pumps. Other system improvements could include combined heat and power systems, HVAC equipment and building controls, the company says.
The award, one of six such contracts under the postal service's Shared Energy Savings (SES) program, is part of a nationwide initiative designed to save $11 million a year in energy costs over 10 years. Participating companies will receive a percentage of the dollar savings attributable to the projects in return for assuming implementation costs, CES adds.
