Brooklyn Brewery has been around since 1988, and in looking for a cost-efficient way to improve the lighting for their employees, found an incentive program from Con Edison that helped them lower their energy costs.
“This is a manual job, hard work,” said Matt Gordon, vice president of operations for Brooklyn Brewery. “Good lighting helps to make sure everyone is safe and doing their job properly.”
The Brewery joined forces with Con Edison back in 2015 and have since installed LED lighting in their workplace. These lights are brighter and require less energy than normal lightbulbs, and as a result lowered their energy cost.
“We also have refrigeration upgrades, heating ventilation and air conditioning,” said Caroline Iskander, section manager at Con Edison. “With Brooklyn Brewery what we were able to do is lead them down a journey that they wanted to fulfill on their own, but we partnered with them to help them achieve that journey together."
Con Edison says Brooklyn Brewery is one of over 40,000 small and mid-sized businesses that have participated in the energy-saving program since 2009. All businesses need to take advantage of the program is an active Con Edison electric or gas account.
