Microturbine Installation Complete at New York Marriott Downtown

The New York Marriott Downtown has installed microturbines pursuant to New York City’s new legislation providing for their operation under Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York, Chapter 50: Distributed Energy Resource Standards.

The New York Marriott Downtown is the latest local property to install microturbines pursuant to New York City’s new legislation (dating from December) providing for their operation (under Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York, Chapter 50, Distributed Energy Resource Standards). The hotel recently installed two PureComfort systems from UTC Power that will help offset 5800 megawatt hours of electricity each year and prevent 1700 tons of C02 emissions.

The installation is part of Marriott’s effort at the corporate level to reduce its energy consumption by 25 percent by 2017. Pursuant to the rule, microturbine installations are permitted if owners (1) receive permission from the utility company, (2) file an application with the Department of Buildings, and (3) obtain a permit from the Fire Department in order to operate the system once DOB issues the first permit and the system is actually installed.
