Hidrock Realty has achieved the Energy Star label throughout its commercial portfolio
as part of an ongoing effort to achieve LEED certification.
Starting in April 2011, Hidrock began working with CodeGreen to establish Energy Star
benchmarks, evaluating each building’s energy consumption and comparing it to similar
buildings. CodeGreen and Con Edison then established steps for Hidrock to improve
energy efficiency, such as updating heating and plant operation systems, converting to
natural gas, and implementing LED lighting and daylight sensors to reduce electricity
usage. Hidrock also installed energy-efficient HVAC units and highly efficient windows
in every tenant space.
