"Susan: Unfortunately, you are correct - property owners in NY are conditioned to wait for a "sale" (incentives).  Even with a near-regular stream of submetering incentives offered by NYSERDA or Con Ed over the past 20 years, many…"

Joseph S. Lopes replied to Norm Bourassa's discussion Retrofit Programs, Codes and Market experiences in the group Multifamily Buildings
"An often overlooked aspect of multifamily energy is master metering.  Many buildings built in the 1940's-1960's in New York City were built with only one utility meter per building without apartment metering.  The waste of energy…"
