City Housing Authority Hornell, N.Y.

The City of Hornell Housing Authority, a NYSEG electricity customer, owns and operates 158 units of housing. Its properties include Church Street Court, Sawyer Street Site, Hillside Manor, and single-family homes.

As NYSEG’s Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program partner, RISE Engineering conducted free energy assessments of Hornell Housing Authority’s multi-family properties to identify recommended energy-efficiency measures (EEMs), which included upgrading common-area lighting and offering tenants financial incentives for installation of energy-efficient lighting, programmable thermostats and other EEMs. These measures resulted in a projected $20,000 in annual electricity savings for the housing authority and participating tenants.
