YORK (Feb. 3, 2014) — Constellation today
announced that it has been awarded a contract by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the
installation of 2,300 energy efficient, light-emitting diode (LED) lights in the Lincoln
Tunnel. Under the terms of the contract, the $2.1 million lighting upgrade is expected
to provide more than $283,000 in energy savings annually to the Port Authority.
The resulting energy savings will be used to fund the cost of the project,
which is scheduled for completion in February of 2014.
In 2012, Constellation was selected by competitive request for
proposal to provide $8.7 million in energy conservation measures for the Port
Authority Bus Terminal and the Lincoln Tunnel. Together, the projects are anticipated
to provide more
than $1 million in energy savings annually over 15 years.
is proud to support the Port Authority’s commitment to energy efficiency and environmental
responsibility,” said Gary Fromer, senior vice president, energy
management programs, for Constellation.
Lincoln Tunnel LED lights will consume roughly half the energy of the existing 70-watt
high-pressure sodium and 100-watt metal halide fixtures and reduce electricity
use by an estimated 1.2 million kilowatt-hours annually. Facilities
located in Perth Amboy, N.J., installed the system. Green RG Management, based in North Arlington, N.J., provided the LED
lighting fixtures. Green Econometrics, in Clifton, N.J., conducted
the energy efficiency analysis of the project.
Erickson, Northeast regional manager for Facility Solutions Group stated, “FSG
values our longstanding relationships with both Constellation and the Port
Authority, and we were pleased to play a part in this exciting project.”
Al Heyer, founder and CEO for Green RG Management said, “We are delighted to work with Constellation and Facilities
Solution Group to deliver a state-of-the-art solution to the Port Authority. Almost
all of our products are assembled in North Arlington, N.J. This enables
