Energy management provider, Bright Power, Inc., receives strategic financing to support business expansion



10 years ago this month, Jeff Perlman had a choice to make. He could go to grad school, he could get a job and join the corporate grind, or he could start his own business and do things his own way. And so began a little thing called Bright Power. This month's newsletter is dedicated to year ten, and everyone who helped us get here. We've seen a lot change over the last decade, and all of it got us to where we are and where we're going. Let's take a look back at some 2014 highlights.


The ENERGY STAR label is synonymous with efficiency. New homes, commercial buildings, even refrigerators have been eligible for the EPA's recognition for over twenty years, yet existing multifamily buildings have been historically left out, until now.


On November 13, 2014, ENERGY STAR announced the first seventeen existing multifamily residential buildings in the nation to receive their prestigious certification. Bright Power is proud to have worked with Related Management on three out of the five New York City properties:

Bright Power is extremely proud to have worked with L+M Development Partners on the Arverne View (previously Ocean Village) revitalization project. See the video below for an in depth look at the amazing journey.




Three of Related Management’s affordable housing properties, 30-50 21st St., Terrific Tenements at 423 W 48th St and 527 W 47th St, have been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as being among the first multifamily housing properties to earn ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance.  



Mayor Bill De Blasio's One City: Built to Last plan has been a positive step forward for New York City's energy landscape. By 2050, New York City greenhouse gas emissions will be slashed by 80% if all goes according to plan. Achieving that goal will require a huge effort and the implementation of many innovative ideas and technology, and one that we applaud is the addition of solar panels in New York City schools.


Energy professionals from near and far came together for The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) Building Energy NYC conference and expo last week. Bright Power was happy to attend and contribute to three diverse panels.

For those unfamiliar, New York City’s Local Law 87, authored in 2009, is an ambitions piece of legislation which requires all buildings over 50,000 square feet to have an energy audit and retrocommissioning performed once every 10 years.
