Coney Island’s Solar Powered Transit Complex

The New York Power Authority has unveiled a new 48-panel solar thermal system at the 75-acre Subway Maintenance Facility on Coney Island. The system will help provide hot water for cleaning subways cars as well as for wash-up facilities used by the employees.  The $1.1 million project is expected to save about $170,000 per year in energy costs and cut the city’s mass transit greenhouse gas emissions by more than 3,000 tons.

Churchill has short-term corporate housing available in New York City and Nationwide. Please contact us at 866-255-0593 or NewYork@FurnishedHousing.com for more information.
