GLRPPR Sector Resource: Let There Be Daylight

Let There Be Daylight

Let There Be Daylight advocates for advanced daylighting systems to become a standard feature of New York City office spaces. This analysis finds that 114 million square feet of NYC office space can easily accommodate the retrofitting of comprehensive daylighting controls and achieve electric peak demand reduction of as much as 160 megawatts, and 340 gigawatt hours of electricity savings. Deployment of daylighting systems is an opportunity for New York City building owners and tenants to benefit from $70 million in energy cost savings each year.
