On Site Energy Co., Inc. provides outdoor radiant heat to WCBS's Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Special, "Holiday in Bryant Park". On Site Energy Co's (OSEC ) electric radiant heaters provided outdoor heat during the "Holiday in Bryant Park" tree lighting ceremony and holiday show in New York City

"Holiday in Bryant Park" attracts thousands of people into the park to be a part of a live television audience. CBS 2 HD anchors Chris Wragge and Kristine Johnson hosted the show. Joining them were The Barenaked Lades, Michael Feinstein, and Cheyenne Jackson. While the famed Canadian Olympic skaters Jamie Salé and David Pelletier performed on the ice at "The Pond at Bryant Park", On Site Energy's radiant heaters kept the audience warm and comfortable.    

On Site Energy's radiant heaters remain at Bryant Park even after the show is over, keeping thousands of visitors warm each day. Whether they come to see the 55 foot, balsam fir tree from Québec, adorned with its shining 3,000 plus ornaments and 30,000 white lights, or are dining or ice skating at "The Pond" or shopping at any of the 100 or more boutiques, designers, or food merchants from around the world at the annual "Holiday Shops" at Bryant Park, On Site Energy is there providing comfort heating for the ongoing events.

When the NYC Fire Marshall decided not to allow Bryant Park to utilize their propane radiant patio heaters around the park due to more stringent rules, they contacted On Site Energy for their temporary heater solutions. On Site Energy has been renting electric radiant heaters ever since Mayor Giuliani invoked the smoking ban in NYC restaurants and bars in the 1990's. On Site Energy's electric heaters plug into common 110 VAC outlets, and provide 1,200 watts of warmth per heater. We utilize attractive black tripods, common in entertainment venues, to stand the heaters some 7 feet off the ground. The heaters are also often used on stages and on podiums, placed on the ground and aimed at the performers - the audience being unaware that the performers are actually warm!

Dennis French, the OSEC sales representative for Manhattan was quoted as saying, "We've been a part of New York's finest and not so finest moments, its highs and its lows for the past 24 years. We've been here for the Democratic National Convention, Macy's Fireworks, and of course the day we will all never forget 9/11. This was a great event with great people and we were able to keep them warm despite in the words of Janet Jackson a "wardrobe malfunction" transpired."
