New York Subway LED Retrofit Project Funding Approved by Governor
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced awards of $4.3 million for 17 projects dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of transportation in New York State.
“By investing in innovative new energy technologies, we are continuing our progress in building a cleaner New York,” Governor Cuomo said.
The projects are being funded through a competitive solicitation administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Award recipient in the LED field included Clear-Vu Lighting for a LED lighting retrofit project in the New York City subway. The company was awarded with US $242,000 in funding. Clear-Vu Lighting will expand its LED lighting products to include a new device to be used in the New York City subway system. Clear-Vu's product would replace a compact fluorescent lighting system used to light tunnels with a LED-based system that would significantly reduce installation and energy costs.
"Congratulations to the winners of these awards, whose innovative projects bring transportation technology to new levels of efficiency and emissions control,” said John B. Rhodes, President and CEO, NYSERDA.
