Ithaca Housing Authority: Partnering with State Agencies November 11, 2009

Filed under: Energy Efficiency — sustainphas @ 9:24 pm
  • In 2004, the Ithaca Housing Authority began to plan for an effort to conserve energy by working with the NYSERDA (NY State Energy and Research Development Authority).  They began a twelve year project to convert the heating system.  IHA upgraded boiler systems and furnaces, installed Energy Star appliances, and added a state-of-the-art heat recovery ventilation system.  IHA estimates that it will save $80,000 a year on energy costs.
  • In 2009, the EPA and HUD awarded the Ithaca Housing Authority with the 2009 ENERGY STAR Award for Energy.
