TARRYTOWN – Work has been completed
at the Metro-North Railroad’s North White Plains Train Yard where
$2.1 million in energy efficiency upgrades were performed.

The upgrades will save the state $328,000 in energy costs and remove some
1,280 tons of greenhouse gases annually.

The project, begun last fall, included energy-savings and efficiency improvements
at four major buildings in the train yard and will give the MTA a greater
ability to track and curtail its energy use, as well as reduce operation
and maintenance costs at the facility.

The New York Power Authority is actively partnering with MTA to improve
energy efficiency and is moving forward with other projects.
