ICM Controls Receives Energy Efficiency Award from NYSERDA
NYSERDA Funding Helps Reduce Company’s Energy Costs by $92,000 Per Year
ICM Controls, a leader in the design and manufacturing of electronic controls, today received a High Performance Building Plaque from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for the energy efficient measures incorporated into its new headquarters building that will help cuts its energy costs by $92,000 per year.
The new ICM Controls world headquarters and manufacturing facility in Cicero, New York, was built using nearly $265,000 of incentives from NYSERDA to install a variety of energy-saving features, including high performance windows, lighting systems, heating and cooling system, and building envelop insulation, among others.
“ICM Controls has been a leader in the manufacturing of energy efficient products for residential and commercial use, and is now demonstrating its commitment to conserving energy by making its manufacturing facility cleaner and greener,” said Francis J. Murray Jr., President and CEO of NYSERDA. “NYSERDA looks forward to partnering with more organizations to help them reduce their energy costs while working to achieve the ambitious energy reduction goals set by Governor David Paterson.”
ICM Controls is the 29th recipient of a High Performance Building Plaque. The plaques are presented to hospitals, libraries, schools, businesses, and organizations that have constructed buildings designed to perform at least 30 percent above the New York State Energy Conservation Construction Code.
“The High Performance Building Plaque serves as validation to ICM’s commitment to responsible corporate citizenship in the use of energy and is consistent with its mission to bring energy saving products to market,” said Ron Kadah, President of ICM Controls.
As a result of this investment, ICM Controls is anticipated to reduce its energy consumption by more than 812,000 kWh per year, the equivalent to the electricity consumed by approximately 125 single family homes per year.
In the Central New York Region, NYSERDA’s New Construction program has awarded High Performance Building Plaques to the Tompkins County SPCA (Ithaca), Aspen Dental Management (Syracuse), and Enable (Syracuse). The program’s goal is to effect a permanent transformation in the way buildings are designed and constructed by offering technical support to building design teams and financial incentives to building owners. In addition, the program offers services and incentives to building owners and designers to encourage green building practices, as well as commissioning, peak-load reduction, and advanced solar technologies. State and local governments, schools, healthcare facilities, and not-for-profit organizations that pay into the System Benefits Charge are eligible for incentives.
Governor Paterson’s ‘45 by 15’ clean energy policy calls for New York to reduce its electricity consumption by 15 percent through improved energy efficiency and increase the proportion of renewable energy used by New York consumers to 30 percent by the year 2015.
