Port Ambrose is a deepwater port consisting of a submerged buoy system for natural gas deliveries that will be located in federal waters approximately 19 miles from the New York shore.  Each delivery is expected to provide an average of 400 million cubic feet of natural gas per day – enough to meet the energy needs of 1.5 million homes. The majority of these deliveries will occur during the peak demand periods of winter and summer.

Energy audits nyc programs has been running since 2011 for residential and commercial buildings and it has been immensely effective in reducing the energy consumption and save the wasted energy. It is advisable to run energy audits once every year, specially for commercial buildings.
