BlocPower's Clean Energy Transition in NY Buildings

United States
Case study of BlocPower

BlocPower's expertise in energy solutions and innovative financing options have led to successful transformations in these New York City buildings.

Case 1: Replacing a Gas Boiler with Heat Pumps in a 14-Unit Multifamily Building
The Challenge: Steadily deteriorating building with a failed gas boiler. Landlord was short on cash flows to pay for the equipment upfront.
The Solution: BlocPower partnered with a local contractor to install multi-split air source heat pumps in all 14 units with rooftop condensers. BlocPower secured over $100,000 in incentives to bring down the costs, resulting in a $1,500 monthly payment for the equipment over a 15-year lease. BlocPower's expertise in energy incentives and flexible financing options made it possible to install a modern electric heating and cooling system.

Case 2: Green Upgrades for an 8-Unit Co-op Building
The Challenge: The client was ineligible for additional project finance funding to reduce the costs of upgrades.
The Solution: BlocPower worked with the co-op board to implement green upgrades using an innovative lease payment option. A local contractor was enlisted to install multi-split air source heat pumps and wall-mounted air handler units throughout the building. Over $120,000 in incentives were secured, reducing the monthly equipment payment to $250 over a 15-year lease.

Case 3: Manage, Install and Maintain a Modern, All-Electric Climate Comfort System of Church of Saint Margaret Mary, built in 1923
The challenge: The boiler was 20+ years old, contributing to poor indoor air quality and inefficient heating and cooling. In addition, the fuel tank was replaced over 5 years ago, needing an upgrade.
The Solution: BlocPower project managed numerous contractors to install a heat pump system that heats and cools the two areas of St. Margaret Mary. In the lobby, a 3-ton, 1-zone Daikin heat pump was installed. In the rectory, a 20 tone, 25 zone Daikin heat pump was installed.
