The Empire State Building (ESB), the world's most famous office building, has become New York City’s largest commercial purchaser of renewable energy. "Clean energy and our nearly 40% reduced consumption of watts and BTUs gives us a competitive advantage in attracting the best credit tenants at the best rents,' said Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, President, and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust. "Our program of innovation at ESB shows simple, replicable, non-proprietary steps for other landlords to follow to be more energy efficient, cleaner and greener." The iconic landmark has signed a multi-year contract to purchase renewable energy to meet all of its electricity use.
ESB's green power purchase further reinforces the building’s nearly completed, groundbreaking $20 million energy efficiency retrofit work that was announced by President Bill Clinton and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2009.
