Concordia, which partnered with Johnson Controls, Inc., expects to save over 550,000 kWh of electricity and 6,700 therms of natural gas annually. “Con Edison is helping colleges, and other commercial and industrial customers, improve the efficiency and operation of their buildings,” said David Pospisil, Program Manager, Con Edison Commercial & Industrial Energy Efficiency Program. “It's an investment that saves energy and money year after year, while providing a better environment for the people who use these high-performance buildings.” "We're pleased to be part of this major energy conservation project with Con Edison," said Dr. Viji George, president of Concordia College. "Since the first phase of the energy savings program at Concordia was completed, our campus has become more green and energy efficient. We plan on continuing these conservation efforts in the future." The C&I program has given out over $7,000,000 in incentive checks to over 800 customers who have participated in the program.
