Lynnfield Company Completes Energy Efficient Housing Project
J.M. Electrical Company worked on energy effiicient boilers for a large Boston Housing Authority Project.
Lynnfield-based J.M. Electrical Company announced recently that it has completed construction and project operations for a Boston Housing Authority project in Charleston. The company specializes in advanced automated building system installations.
In its announcement, the company reported that it had installed Alerton controls, emergency lighting and wiring for new energy efficient boilers in 24 buildings for low- and moderate-income residents.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino was quoted in the announcement as saying that "projects like this prove that low-income housing can also be energy-efficient housing." J.M. Electrical's project manager, Adam Palmer, cited the environmental and job creation benefits of focusing on energy efficiency.
In its announcement, J.M. Electrical also cited a recent study from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development which found that public housing has the lowest energy efficiency of all types of U.S. residential households. Cutting energy costs in public housing by 10% could reportedly save up to $200 million per year.
