Energy Conservation & Innovation is Happening Right Here in White Plains

Avalaon WP

Thank you to AvalonBay Communities for hosting Mayor Roach & City Building Commissioner Damon Amadio this afternoon at Avalon White Plains on Barker Ave, where they got to see & learn about the 1st indoor lithium-ion battery storage unit in NY State. This innovative technology helps manage peak energy load and increases resiliency. We are excited that this First in NY State is happening here in WP!
AI innovator Logical Buildings worked with AvalonBay Communities, Inc. to install the unit. The building is now benefiting from a demand-response initiative in which a 144kW battery bank discharges at peak hours to support the electricity grid when under stress; and re-charges at off-peak times to take advantage of low cost, low carbon emission power. Another advantage is the battery is able to serve as a generator in the event of power outages. 
“The battery system transforms Avalon White Plains into a building which intelligently sources power from the grid and onsite battery based on multiple parameters, including electricity pricing, billing demand, building systems, and grid conditions,” said Abhay Ambati, Senior Vice President, Technology Services at Logical Buildings.
