ConEdison Solutions has announced that Chelsea Piers in Manhattan now ranks as New York City's largest commercial customer using 100% wind power.
As part of its multi-faceted commitment to sustainability, Chelsea Piers makes an annual purchase of clean and renewable wind energy in an amount equal to the entire electricity usage of its 28-acre, 1 million square-foot property through ConEdison Solutions' Green Power electricity supply offering. In the last year, Chelsea Piers' electricity usage was approximately 22 million kWh.
‘Chelsea Piers has made a comprehensive commitment to environmental best practices throughout our complex,’ says Chelsea Piers Executive Vice President David A. Tewksbury. ‘Despite economic pressures relating to the recession, we continue to make substantial investments in our green efforts.’
ConEdison Solutions obtains the 100% wind-powered renewable energy certificates from Community Energy Inc., which are generated by wind farms around the country.
