One City Place, a luxury residential apartment complex in White Plains, New York, managed by Rose Associates Inc., is expected to realize about $150,000 in electric cost savings after retaining Green Crown Energy to secure the lowest possible rates and terms.
“The handwriting is on the wall and all indicators are pointing toward continued escalation in energy prices,” said Nick Papamichael, chief procurement officer at GreenCrownEnergy, a leading full-service energy consulting company specializing in energy supply, cost reduction and turnkey cogeneration systems development. “As a result, buildings such as One City Place are taking wise preemptive measures by engaging energy consultants like Green Crown to research and negotiate attractive electric and gas procurement contracts that lock in the lowest possible energy prices over the term of the contract.”
Papamichael had estimated that One City Place’s electrical outlay would increase substantially in 2014. “By helping the owners reach agreement on an attractive electricity contract, they will have electric cost savings of about $150,000 over the term of the agreement. To score that kind of savings in such a volatile energy market is a significant win for our client,” he noted.
Working closely with GreenCrown Energy during the entire electric procurement negotiation process was Baron Hazen, senior property manager at One City Place.
“I was very impressed with the professionalism and expertise of the GreenCrown team, and how seamlessly we were able to transition from our previous consultant,” he said. “We were very pleased with the electric procurement contract they helped us negotiate, and the fact that we can now forecast the lowest possible electric costs — and not have to guess what we would have been spending in this market.”
Papamichael explained that “with rising energy prices hanging over building owners throughout New Jersey and New York, we’re seeing more building management teams requesting our assistance to help them reduce energy costs and guard against blackouts in a number of ways. For example, on-site Cogeneration (CHP) power has become an extremely viable and practical technology that’s making a big difference for many types of buildings, including hospitals, that must have a dependable source of energy readily available.”
Whether it’s long-term electric and gas procurement contracts or Cogeneration, Papamichael says Green Crown’s goal is to help building owners accurately forecast energy usage while keeping their costs as low as possible.
