Local Businesses Save Money And Energy With Central Hudson

Stocks in this article: LIME

Hudson Valley businesses are continuing to benefit from Central Hudson’s Business Lighting Upgrades, for which Lime Energy (NASDAQ: LIME) is the exclusive implementer for the Mid-Hudson Valley. By offsetting the project costs by up to 70 percent for upgrading their lights for qualified small and medium sized business customers, Central Hudson is encouraging local companies to waste less energy. In turn, businesses save up to 30 percent on their monthly energy bill. Headquartered in Poughkeepsie, NY, Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation serves approximately 300,000 electric and 75,000 natural gas customers in portions of eight counties of New York State’s Mid-Hudson River Valley.

“Central Hudson has helped more than 2,000 Hudson Valley businesses create a brighter, more pleasant work environment,” said Brian Dimisko, Division Manager of Energy Efficiency for Central Hudson. “New lighting options, including light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures and outdoor lighting, now make it possible for small and mid-sized businesses, office buildings and other facilities to upgrade to more efficient lighting with little out-of-pocket expense, and customers may cover their portion of the investment with a convenient extended payment plan for 24 months, which is typically the time the investment pays for itself.”

To date, participants together are lowering their electric bills by more than $3.5 million per year and are avoiding 20,314 tons of greenhouse gas emissions into the environment, realizing in total an estimated annual savings of more than 38 million kilowatt-hours in electrical usage, or enough energy to power 4,697 homes for one year.

“We are glad to be helping our valued business customers realize financial savings while making the Hudson Valley a more sustainable place to live,” said Dimisko.
