Increase Energy Efficiency of New York
Glen Cove, New York – June 8, 2005 – Intellidyne LLC, a Glen Cove, New York manufacturer of energy-saving technologies, and Smart Building Products, an energy service company based in Newburgh, New York, are joining forces to help reduce energy expenditures and consumption by 10-30 percent at school districts throughout the state of New York.
Some of the first public school systems to adopt the IntelliCon® energy economizers are Carle Place, North Shore, Comsewogue, Wantagh, and Lawrence. These school districts are currently using the IntelliCon controls to reduce fuel consumption on each building’s existing heating or air conditioning systems by 10% to 30%. IntelliCon economizers are easily installed on a school’s heating, air conditioning or refrigeration systems and significantly reduce energy consumption without affecting the building comfort level for faculty, staff and students.
The IntelliCon units were recommended to these and other New York State public schools by Smart Building Products, a company providing unique energy solutions to school districts throughout the Northeast. Smart Building Products works closely with leading companies in the energy sector such as Johnson Controls, Honeywell, Noresco, CS Engineers and many others. “We evaluated the efficacy of IntelliCon for several years before recommending the product for our performance contracting group in public schools,” said Danny Haffel, Director of Business Development, New York Metro Area, Johnson Controls. “The results have been so impressive that we automatically include IntelliCon in all of the energy management projects we initiate in the tri-state area. Based on the success of our other IntelliCon installations, other regional Johnson Control offices are also adopting the technology.”
IntelliCon will reduce the school’s energy usage by automatically compensating for load and outdoor temperature changes and works in conjunction with the heating or cooling system’s existing temperature controls.
