BBS – Your One-Stop Resource for Energy Efficient Sustainable Design

BBS has been implementing energy efficient projects for over 25 years. We provide exceptional design, implementation guidance, energy-efficient solutions, innovative technologies, and carbon footprint reduction applications.

BBS is a leader in helping clients consider their energy and sustainability goals. We proactively engage clients in discussion about incorporating appropriate energy solutions into their master plans. Solutions can include upgrading existing equipment to more energy efficient options, generating and implementing an Energy Performance Contract (EPC), designing photovoltaic (solar) electric, planning of geothermal heating and cooling systems, and more.

Some of the great projects recently completed or currently in progress:

Bayport-Blue Point UFSD: The district embarked on a voter-approved EPC that will have a positive impact on the district’s finances and carbon footprint. Through the EPC the district will implement efficiency measures such as LED lighting replacement, boiler replacement, ventilation upgrades, programable SMART plugs and significant solar installation that will reduce the district’s kWH by nearly 96%. The district’s plan will maximize State Aid, and the utility rebates along with the energy savings will create an estimated $4.9 million positive cash flow over the course of the next 15 years.

Town of Huntington, Conte Community Center: The Town of Huntington retained BBS to help convert a former New York State armory building into a community center. In the Spring of 2021, the Town allocated funds to install a geothermal heating and cooling system and a 25-30KW solar energy system at the Huntington Station-based center. These systems will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the building and eliminate the use of fossil fuels for heating and cooling.

Florida UFSD (NY): The district has undertaken an EPC to install a solar energy system that will provide electricity to the S.S. Seward Institute, the building that houses its High School and Middle School, and to Golden Hill Elementary School. Construction of the car ports that will house the solar panels is underway. It is estimated that the project will save the district nearly 43% in electric costs at these two locations.

Comsewogue UFSD: Comsewogue school district was able to take two of its elementary buildings completely “off the grid” with the installation of solar panels. This was accomplished at one school through implementation of an EPC and at another school by voter-approved bond.

Lindenhurst Memorial Library: In October of 2019, the Lindenhurst Memorial Library was designated a Certified Sustainable Library, solidifying its commitment to “green” practices. To further this commitment, the current building project includes the installation of 181 solar panels through the bond that was approved in the Fall of 2020. Benefits will include energy production as well as reduced CO2 emissions, equivalent to several thousand trees doing their job to clean the air.
