COVER - 2019 Westchester Economic Development GuideWESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY -- The Business Council of Westchester recently published their 2019 Westchester County Economic Development Guide which serves as a valuable resource to see just how Westchester businesses thrive within the county.


The guide leads with a warm welcome from County Executive, George Latimer stating, "Our plans to explore a new biotech frontier with the 99-year lease of the North 60 Project, our thriving healthcare sector, booming food and beverage industry, and goals to advance renewable energy and green business are just some of the reasons to bring your business here".


NuEnergen Energy Management firm of White Plains is of honorable mention as Westchester continues to feature leading-edge programs and businesses dedicated to advancing green business practices and the adoption of clean and renewable energy resources. A highlight of sustainability success includes the agreement with NuEnergen, LLC to provide the County with "Demand Response" program services, to balance energy and supply and demand and help protect against unplanned power outages. These curtailment measures are expected to earn the County millions of dollars in recurring revenue over the life of the contract, as well as provide an opportunity to further enhance its sustainability efforts. 


Demand response programs offer financial incentives to owners of facilities, in this case Westchester County, which can reduce the need to kilowatts (kW) during times of high stress on the region's electric grid.


"NuEnergen is excited to serve Westchester County," says NuEnergen President & CEO, Kevin Hamilton. "Like New York City, the County's participation will deliver a key sustainability success story and an example of fiscal innovation."
