Luthin Associates was involved in negotiating a Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA) that helped a well-established New York City university build the largest solar system installed in New York City. The 3.1-megawatt solar collection will offset a significant share of the electricity used by this university and its sister school located in the Bronx. This project is in support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s clean energy goal authorizing 50% of electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2030.
Energy budgeting, unlike other disciplines, requires analysis of futures markets, pending regulatory actions and many other factors. A large University has worked with Luthin Associates for over ten years in the development of an energy management program. One of the annual program deliverables is the development of both fossil fuel and electricity cost projections for the coming year.Read Case Study
