Join BE-Ex for an educational session on long-term capital planning for energy efficiency projects at The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG). With strategic planning and innovative upgrades, NYBG has reduced energy use by 21% and emissions by 53% per area sq. ft. over the last decade, saving roughly $300,000 a year.
