(UHS) will be one of the first projects with RENEW It Now NY, an initiative focused on speeding the implementation of energy-efficiency retrofits and clean energy upgrades throughout New York State.  RENEW It Now NY won participation in NYSERDA's Emerging Technologies and Accelerated Commercialization program which supports innovative projects and project approaches by providing participants with special incentives, additional measurement and verification of project performance, and showcasing of projects.

RENEW It Now NY in Action

United Health Services Hospitals, Inc. (UHS), a not-for-profit healthcare system and the Southern Tier's largest healthcare provider, will be one of the first demonstration sites for RENEW It Now NY. The facility-wide upgrades include new LED lighting, lighting controls, and building automation systems.  Along with these core retrofit services, the program provides upfront auditing and post-construction maintenance, optimization and monitoring services – all focused on delivering energy efficiency and peak ongoing performance.

Rich Keehle, Director of Support Services at UHS Hospitals said, "Our participation in the RENEW It Now NY program helps us to immediately shrink our carbon footprint, lower our energy and maintenance costs and realize significant improvements to our major facilities' lighting in a clearly visible manner to our patients, visitors, and staff.  We're doing so without using our own capital, and we now have a team in place to provide on-going maintenance as well as help us take advantage of future potential energy savings retrofits opportunities."

Crothall Healthcare is a leading support service provider for healthcare systems nationwide and UHS's provider of choice for all of their New York facilities.  "We are pleased to be an early strategic partner participating in the RENEW It Now NY program," said Paul Norton, Vice President of Crothall Healthcare. "High-quality solid-state lighting and smart building control systems come with a price, but the energy and maintenance savings potential is significant and quantifiable and the improvement to the working environment is substantial.  We are thrilled to provide this service to UHS by delivering the benefits of this technology upgrade through a turnkey project including capital funding. Our clients now have a great option to move forward with comprehensive facility upgrades sooner, rather than later."
