For the purpose of implementing an Existing Facilities Program or a FlexTech Program for McCauley Mountain through the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority, the Town of Webb Board passed a resolution in support of the Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century (CAP-21) submitting an application on the town’s behalf.
Because McCauley provides thousands of residents and visitors with recreational and economic opportunities, employment, and community activities and events, it was the Board’s belief that these programs would be of assistance to the mountain.
Additionally, they cited the need for significant upgrades to the Ski Chalet as well as the snow making equipment to make them more energy efficient, thereby increasing the long-term profitability and sustainability of McCauley.
In the FlexTech Program the town would receive a cost-shared analysis of energy efficiency, technical evaluations, improvement analyses, as well as energy master plans.
The program would also help with retro commissioning and the development of peak-load curtailment plans of existing facilities.
The town would also receive combined heat and power feasibility studies for implementation in McCauley’s facilities.
NYSERDA’s Existing Facilities Program will offer the town a broad portfolio of incentives to help offset the costs of implementing energy efficiency improvements.
