Benedict Properties - 3025 Godwin Terrace



The Energy Assessment was performed on behalf of Benedict Properties at 3025 Godwin Terrace to identify energy efficiency measures that, when implemented, would make the property more efficient in terms of energy and water usage.

The procedures and methods used in our analysis exceed the requirements of an ASHRAE Level II Energy Evaluation. Moreover, this Report has been designed to satisfy the Energy Audit requirements of New York City Local Law 87

In addition, our report encompasses a detailed evaluation and analysis of all aspects of building energy (electricity, fuel oil and natural gas) as well as energy efficiency measures in connection with the building’s main components including heating, lighting, electric motors, air conditioning and building envelope.

Approximately 50% of the evaluations for retrofits for energy and water saving measures have paybacks that are considered to be economic. Measures with medium to long paybacks are included for informational purposes and should not be considered as recommended for economic reasons alone.
