NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.—The Radisson Hotel New Rochelle is undergoing almost $2 million in updates to improve the energy efficiency of the 10-story, 129-room property.

The second and most expensive part of the renovation—one costing about a million dollars—was the replacement of the boiler plant with one with digital controls. That upgrade is expected to reduce energy costs by $250,000 a year, gas consumption by more than 35 percent, and emissions by 750 tons annually. “The direct digital control system allows us to have more zones, or more points of control, which enables us to adjust specific areas of the property,” Brock says.
