EPA/MEMO-Cogen, Inc. of Westchester County, New York, an ESCO which specializes in NYSERDA-supported lighting improvements, completed the lighting upgrade of G.A.L. Manufacturing Corp. during the spring of 2004. G.A.L. Mfg. Corp. is the largest elevator parts manufacturer in the US. Its manufacturing facility and headquarters are located directly across the street from Yankee Stadium. The building is a two story, 100,000 square foot structure with the manufacturing, and shipping & receiving functions located on the ground floor and the offices located on the 2nd floor. This project involved the total redesign of the lighting system.
The completed project reduced demand by 88.2 kW. The offices now contain 50% less fixtures, producing a clean, crisp look. Power consumption has been reduced by 143,489 kWh. The net result, as with all of EPA/MEMO-Cogen's lighting retrofit projects, provided a payback of less than 2 years with a 40% return on investment.
