Yellow Cab Parking Lot gets a GREEN Boost!

September 4, 2013 AwardsMedia

The Yellow Cab Company took part in a Connecticut Light and Power Energy Savings program in 2013. The company went through an inspection and evaluation of current operational procedures including the lighting of the parking lot.  Older equipment in the parking lot will be replaced with newer, more energy efficient equipment. The move not only improved the operating effiency of the facility, it enhances the bottom line of facility operating costs and it is good for the environment.  The estimated lifetime energy savings impact in terms of dollars ($$$$) by replacing the lighting at the YCC facility is estimated to be over $82,000.00 in addition to eliminating CO2, (a greehouse gas) SO2 and NOx (causes of acid rain).
