Empire State Building Going Green

The Empire State Building is going green to significantly reduce the building's energy consumption. Renovations will include replacing all 6,500 windows to reduce summer heat load and winter heat loss.

Tenants in the building will also be able control their own power on a new web-based system, so that energy can be managed more efficiently.

The goal is to cut energy use by 38 percent, which will save $4.4 million a year in energy costs.

Former President Clinton joined Mayor Bloomberg for the annoucement yesterday.

The building will use private money to fund the $20 million project.
