Buildings Sought for Energy Efficiency Program

anca logoBuilding owners and managers in the Saranac Lake area have been invited to participate in a new program designed to reduce energy costs.

The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) is coordinating a project called the Aggregation for Community Energy Security (ACES), which allows businesses, municipalities and nonprofits who own or manage private or public-purpose buildings in and near the Village of Saranac Lake to receive reduced cost energy assessments and examine potential energy efficiency upgrades.

Over 20 people attended an informational kick-off event for the ACES project in April in Saranac Lake. The event was hosted by ANCA and regional contractor L&S Energy Services. The two entities are seeking participants for the energy assessments, which will be conducted through the end of May.

ANCA and local business partners selected L&S Energy Services, a Clifton Park-based consulting firm that focuses on energy efficiency, to oversee the project.

By aggregating participants for the project, ANCA and L&S are able to offer energy assessments for reduced cost. Participants will receive a report characterizing the energy-efficiency performance of their buildings as well as specific measures they can take to lower their energy use and related expenses.

For more information about the launch event or the ACES project, contact ANCA Energy Circuit Riders Nancy Bernstein at or (518) 891-6200.
