FOX NY – Reduces Electrical & Water Usage

WNYW and WWOR have reduced electrical consumption at the Fox 5 Studios in Manhattan and the My9 Studios and Master Control facilities in New Jersey by implementing a plan to turn off HVAC units during “off hours” and installing motion detector light switches throughout both facilities, and high efficiency lighting where possible. In addition the installation of infra-red automatic faucets in rest rooms to conserve water has resulted in a 5% reduction in lavatory water use; the reduction of mail runs between facilities has resulted in lowering fuel usage; and, the installation of a new high efficiency boiler at the FOX-5 facility has decreased annual fuel consumption by 15%.
