Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
Syracuse, NY-based mechanical contracting firm TAG Mechanical Systems, Inc., was named an honoree in the Central New York Business Journal’s “Time to Build” awards. TAG will receive a Spotlight Award for providing HVAC mechanical systems including a renewable energy 54 kW solar PV system for the Skaneateles Village Hall in Skaneateles, NY.
Two Daikin McQuay SmartSource vertical inverter water source heat pumps provide heating and cooling of the facility as part of a geothermal system, and 220 Aleo solar PV panels on the roof generate approximately 62,000 kilowatt hrs per year of electricity. Electricity not used by the building is placed on the grid.
“We’re thrilled to receive this award for helping bring about the first net-zero municipal building in the state,” said Ellis Guiles, co-owner and vice president at TAG. “This project is a great model for other municipalities.”
Formerly a vacant fire station, the repurposed building now houses village offices and a police station and is designed to produce more energy than it consumes. The project is expected to reduce energy usage by more than 62,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually and result in the avoidance of 46 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
