Thanks to Upgrades, Garage Going ‘Green’ in New Haven, CT


The Green Parking Council (GPC), along with the Con-


necticut Energy Efficiency Fund (CEEF) and FirstEnergy’s United Illuminating Co., held a press conference Sept. 21 at Chapel Square Garage in New Haven, CT, to unveil several upgrades that its owners had made to become the state’s first GPC Demonstrator Site, in advance of becoming a GPC-certi- fied Green Garage. The largest of the upgrades was the installation of the


“Juice Bar,” a free electric-vehicle charging station. As a result of its efforts to encourage customers to commute responsibly by conserving energy and reducing emissions, the Chapel Square Garage has become the first site in Connecticut to begin working with GPC as a Demonstrator Site. Speakers included Marc Alt, GPC’s Executive Director;


Anthony Marone, a United Illuminating Co. Vice President; Richard Steeves, Chairman of the Board overseeing the CEEF; Christine Eppstein Tang, Director of New Haven’s Office of Sustainability; and Patrick Boeshans, Chief Administrative Officer of ProparkAmerica, the company that operates Chapel Square Garage. Alt pointed out various improvements the garage owners


had made in an effort to upgrade their facilities to meet GPC green certification requirements. “These upgrades are environ-


mentally friendly, but they are also business friendly,” Alt said. “By implementing green initiatives, garage owners are posi- tioning themselves to stay ahead of the curve and remain com- petitive in a changing market.” The non-profit GPC is dedicated to developing standards


for parking garages that want to reduce their carbon footprint and encourage customers to use environmentally sustainable forms of transportation.
